Video Surfaces of Boston Dynamics’ Handle 2-Wheeled Robot

By now we are all familiar with Boston Dynamics’ menagerie of impressive, yet frightening robots. From self-balancing, self-correcting robot “dogs” that are walking nightmares, to weird looking humanoids. Now meet Handle, another creepy robot. This one runs around on two legs and two wheels. It is faster and more agile than conventional robots, and it will not stop until we are dead. That last part is just an educated guess.

Handle is lightweight, and instead of walking on all fours, the robot can stand up and roll on its two wheels. It is designed to carry a heavy load, and much like a Segway, it can keep its balance despite standing on just two wheels. It’s scary fast and has obstacle detection, and can even jump over some low objects. It can spin around and jump with ease too.

Along with some of Boston Dynamics’ other cool robots, you can see Handle in action in the presentation video below at about the 3:41 mark.

In some ways it is scarier than their dog models, because of it’s speed and agility mostly. God help us all.

Be sure to watch the video before it gets taken down, since, Boston Dynamics apparently asked the guy who posted it to blur it out from the video clip he posted on YouTube.
