Handle – the rolling robot

Boston Dynamics are at it again.

This leaked out in a shaky cell phone cam video a few weeks back, glad I waited to talk about it because we now have a proper video to talk about.

Few interesting things at work here. The wheels work surprisingly well for outside. I can see a bigger / fatter set of wheels/tires on this thing and it really doing well.
The ballance is impressive, but those arms would really help things out, it is almost human like in some of the moves.
I guess the most interesting thing for me is the bump in efficiency and quietness…. I mean if you are going to have a robot overlord follow you around all day, it needs to be quiet!
