Boston Dynamics Unveils The Robot Soldier Of The Near Future

Published on 7 April, 2017 at 9:15 pm By

The future is here! In an amazing move to bring sci-fi to reality, Google’s robotics factory, Boston Dynamics. has unveiled the robot soldier of the future.

“Handle” as it has been aptly named, stands on its two legs much like the earlier versions: BigDog and Spot. However, what makes it more stabilized is the presence of two wheels at the end of its two legs which allows it to stand up vertically and roll around at speeds of up to nine miles per hour.

Handle can carry up to 50 kgs of load CNN

The real life “Terminator on a hoverboard”  has a simple design and not a complex system of multiple bots like other robots. The wheels can make it move around with little difficulty while the front legs are used for balance and carrying loads of up to fifty kilograms.

Boston Robotics commented,



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.

The founder of Boston Dynamics, Marc Raibert, tagged it as “a nightmare inducing robot.” Google’s parent company, Alphabet, is looking to offload Boston Dynamics after a series of its videos were leaked on social media. The Google communications team believes that such technology can be “terrifying” and does not think that it fits within the larger corporate culture.
