HUMANOID with amazing skills!!!!!!

Boston Dynamics' Handle is a research robot that unlike the previous robots that could only ran, jumped or walked, this two-legged monstrosity gets around on small wheels. Even with the adjustment, shows clearly how it can still get down stairs, navigate down a snowy hill, and pull off impressive leaps even while moving. It 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 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.
