Boston Dynamics Creates What Very Well Could Be World’s Coolest Robot


February 28, 2017

Some robots are awesome, and some are pretty useless. One new robot, however, is making a convincing case to be considered the coolest robot on the planet.

Boston Dynamics, a Waltham, Mass., robotics company owned by Google, released a YouTube video Monday featuring it’s latest, greatest achievement: Handle.

Handle not only can run, jump and carry things as well as any robot, but it does so with flare and style that really separates it from its peers.

The company’s research robot stands at a whopping 6-foot-5, can move as quickly as 9 mph and jump as high as 4 feet. With only 10 actuated joints, Boston Dynamics says the vehicle is significantly less complex than the other robots it produces. As far as range is concerned, Handle can travel up to 15 miles on a single battery charge.

We’re not sure what the objective would be, but let’s hope there’s some sort of competitive robot league for Handle to dominate in the near future.
