There’s another robot in town! This one is called Handle and he can do some pretty awesome things! Think of a horse with skates on. This guy can roll down steps with ease, jump over any obstacles it faces and do some pretty impressive blading to rival Chris Haffey.
He is the latest robot to come out of Boston Dynamics with extreme jumping ability. Handle has horse-like arms for stability and wheels for feet. Watching him perform jumps with such ease even though he weighs hundreds of pounds is amazing! He can also reach speeds of nine miles per hour and jump four feet vertically.
Handle won’t be going into production yet. He is purely an experimental project built to demonstrate that robots don’t always need to mirror human abilities. They can be so much more! Check out the video above to see Handle in action!
