Can you get a “Handle” On this?

This is not an alien. This is a robot. And a freaking awesome one too.

Boston Dynamics’ Frightening New Robot ‘Handle’ Is A Multitasking Acrobat

Boston Dynamics, the company that is literally changing the way we view the world with robots just released footage of its latest creation- Handle. It’s 6.5 feet tall and moves around on two legs attached to wheels and can literally do anything. It’s so scarily correct in its movements!

Handle can move like a ballerina, hit a speed of 9 miles per hour, can jump, climb stairs, buzz past cars and even go up snowy hills! And guess what- it can even carry stuff, the video showcases it carrying a 50kg weight with absolute swag. It can last up to 24 hours.

How’s handle able to do all of that? By combining hydraulic and electric actuators, which apparently is less complicated than what is found in quadruped and bipedal robots, according to Boston Dynamics.
