The Google-owned company Boston Dynamics has released a video of its new two-wheeled and four-legged hybrid robot named “Handle”. This robot can travel faster on the wheel and can jump up to few feet. It can maintain its balance by adjusting its centre of gravity with the help of its legs.
Boston Dynamics stated that use of wheel is much simpler than the complex joints of fully-quadrupedal bots. Additionally, the front legs can be used for carrying loads up to 100 lbs.
