Google-owned robotics firm Boston Dynamics recently released a video of its latest robot creation. Named Handle, the two-wheeled, four-legged hybrid robot stands 6.5 ft tall, travels at nine miles per hour and can jump about four feet vertically. Additionally, Handle runs on electric power that operates both electric and hydraulic actuators that provide the robot with movement. But what has people talking is Handle’s ability to perform parkour. Thanks to Handle’s balance and mobile manipulation principles the 10 actuated joints function on the same dynamics used for human movement. Check out Boston Dynamics’ Handle research robot and let us know what you think.
