Introducing Handle

robotlegged locomotionboston dynamicsdynamic controlbalancemobile manipulation

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 the quadruped and biped robots we build, 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.

I'm confused. So are their robots autonomous? Or are they being remotely controlled to an extent ?

You guys are awesome ... the regulation of such complex systems must be a nightmare but still you have made it this far.
Which end is the front end?
Aron Septianto
so is this the prologue of code geass?
Cool thing!
Now I know what death sounds like !
They should make it look like a Pokémon and watch the idiots chase it around with their cell phones

What is the point of making all these different weird looking fantasy toys? ... I've never seen ANY of them used for ANYTHING.
Andreas Music
It almost looked like CGI at the beginning! This is incredible

And I thought Legos were hard to make.
Honestly, I don't even care about the practical applications. Just make more videos of it doing tricks in the streets, jumping ledges and staircases, going down halfpipes and shit. Take it around to all the spots made famous by the Tony Hawk video game series. Imagine what you guys could do if you teamed up with Redbull.

Would like to see Handle in the skatepark!

I think it's just for us consumers but in reality they are far more beyond whats shown on those videos.

Pres Har
This reminds me of Sideswipe from transformers 2
Maximillian Dirnfeld
ok... but can I fuck it?
Okay, so they be making robots for years now, and all we get is little video and few "funny" comments. I don't see general purpose of these. And someone said that army is financing these, and all the soldiers are still pretty old school to me... Can someone explain me without being too "smart"? Thank you.

When I was watching this I thought "What if it falls and hurts itself?" and then I realized that it can't actually feel anything. Makes me sad for some reason.

Good stuff (a serious understatement). Keep it up. When the robot revolution arrives I want to be on their good side :O)
