So when word got out that there was leaked footage of a new robot from Boston Dynamics, we couldn’t resist. The new robot is named Handle and it is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, one of the most advanced robots in their arsenal.
Below is the leaked footage, whereby Handle can be seen from 3:44-4:48.
“[Handle is an] experiment in combining wheels with legs, with a very dynamic system that is balancing itself all the time and has a lot of knowledge of how to throw its weight around.”
