A leaked video surfaced earlier this month providing the first glimpse of Boston Dynamic’s latest robot. Dubbed Handle, the advanced research robot stands 6.5 feet tall and unlike some of the company’s other creations, relies on wheels instead of stepping legs to get around.
On Monday, Boston Dynamics unveiled official footage of the “nightmare-inducing” robot and boy is it ever impressive.
As you’ll see, Handle is incredibly nimble and exhibits excellent balance and weight transfer. It’s even able to traverse tricky ramps, steep inclines and stairs, lift and carry heavy objects and hurdle obstacles with ease. Very, very impressive stuff.
