"Handle" – the latest robot from Boston Dynamics

Boston Dynamics, the engineering and robotics company best known for the development of BigDog, has revealed its latest creation. "Handle" is a research robot that stands 6.5 ft tall, travels at 9 mph and jumps 4​ ​feet vertically. ​It uses electric power to operate both electric and hydraulic actuators, with a range of about 15 miles on one battery charge. ​​​Handle uses many of the same dynamics, balance and mobile manipulation principles​ found in previous quadruped and biped robots built by the company, but with only about 10 actuated joints, it is significantly less complex. Wheels are efficient on flat surfaces while legs can go almost anywhere: by combining wheels and legs, Handle can have the best of both worlds.
