Leaked Footage Shows ‘Nightmare-Inducing’ Wheeled Robot from Boston Dynamics
Boston Dynamics is one of the world leaders is robotics, and they have built many “models” that move with eerily lifelike motions.
Their latest model, dubbed “Handle” due to it’s ability to handle larger objects than BD’s legged robots, is the first to features wheels, which does away with the creepy human- or animal-like movement, but is still a bit unnerving. It’s incredibly cool technology and seeing this thing in action, it is insanely agile, showing just how well Boston Dynamics has mastered balance and control of their systems.
If the wheeled robot moving on its own, twirling and curving with the smoothness of a figure skater, isn’t cool enough, check out the flying leap it takes over a bar at the end of its demo. The future looks pretty cool for Boston Dynamics and robotics fans, for sure!
