Google-owned robotics company officially introduced its newest robot "Handle"

The search engine giant Google-owned robotics company officially introduced its newest robot, Handle, in a YouTube video posted Wednesday which immediately mesmerized the Internet. Handle, which can stands up 6-foot-6, looks like vaguely human having a torso , legs and arms its also have wheels as an alternative to feet.

Boston Dynamics explained the combination of legs and wheels as the best of both globes. The wheels flat surfaces. (It can 15-mile distance on one charge.) With legs it has the ability to control rough terrain, and go nearly anywhere.

Handle shows an amazing amount of grace for a hulking robot. In the video Handle rolls down steps, jumps over barriers and onto tables. It it can vertical leap upto 48 inches vertical leap of 48 , that compares favorably to skill human professional athletes such as the winners of the NBA's dunk contest.

In the 96-second video, Handle also speed and quickness. Handle can quickly accelerate to 9 miles per hour. Handle is also efficient in holding heavy loads, showing its strength in one clip in which it lifts 100 pounds.

 

But the robot is still under research project. It's uncertain when, or if ever, we'll see the Handle performing in the real life. Boston Dynamics has long released appealing videos of its robots doing all kind of feats. Developing a robot that's really can capable of serving properly and effectively near humans is much more challenging than producing a glossy demo video.

Handle first appeared earlier this month, when a Silicon Valley investor posted footage of Manage which broadcast at a private occasion.

"This is the debut presentation of what I think will be a nightmare-inducing robot, if you're anything like me," Boston Dynamics CEO Marc Raibert said to the crowd during the time, drawing laughter.
