Waltham robotics pioneer Boston Dynamics is entering the increasingly crowded market for humanoid robots.

For years, the company has released wild videos of its human-shaped robot, Atlas, performing tricks such as dancing, doing back flips, and starring in a Super Bowl commercial. But the hydraulic-powered “research platform,” as the company called it, was never intendedfor sale.
