Boston Dynamics presents Robot capable of riding on wheels

Founder of Google Boston Dynamics, Marc Raibert, presented during a conference in the United States, a new type of robot that has the incredible ability to ride on wheels.

The robot, nicknamed “Handle“, it has a outstanding movement and balance. Seems the problem of balance in robot has been ended. ‘Handle’ is even able to jump objects that are obstructing the way. Though the chances of falling are rare, it can stand up itself even after it falls, Marc explained.

“Handle” was designed with the ability to carry items, as well as other Boston Dynamics robots, but more efficiently and quickly than a leg robot to get around.

By using wheels instead of legs, Boston Dynamics also said it hopes to reduce the cost of these robots and make them “less complex” and more powerful.
