New Age Robots – Hello from Handle – The Smart & Highly Flexible Machine.
New Age Robots are finally here, exactly as they where shown in the Terminator films.These Smart & Highly Flexible bots have been designed for optimum performance & maneuverability.The Rise of the machines is here !! But how long before these Robots can out smart & move faster than Humans is the slightly worrying question ??
USA Based Tech firm Boston Dynamics introduces Handle.A research robot that stands 6.5 ft tall, travels at 9 mph and jumps 4 feet vertically. It uses electric power to operate both electric and hydraulic actuators, with a range of about 15 miles on one battery charge. 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.
