    Google officially reveals its latest robot. (Newer report and Video here)
    Google robot revealed: Boston Dynamics' 'Handle' has wheels for feet - Feb. 28, 2017
    The Google-owned robotics company officially unveiled its latest robot, Handle, in a YouTube video posted Wednesday that immediately captivated the Internet. Handle, which stands 6-foot-6, looks vaguely human with a torso, arms and legs that have wheels instead of feet.
    Boston Dynamics described the combination of legs and wheels as the best of both worlds. The wheels make Handle energy efficient on flat surfaces. (It has a 15-mile range on one charge.) With legs it's able to manage uneven terrain, and go nearly anywhere.

    Handle shows an unusual amount of grace for a hulking robot. In the video Handle rolls down steps, jumps over barriers and onto tables. It boasts a vertical leap of 48 inches, which compares favorably to great human athletes like the winners of the NBA's dunk contest.

    The Terminator are here almost as well. And that movie karate kid sucked.

    Leaked video shows new ‘nightmare-inducing’ wheeled robot from Boston Dynamics



    These will make great wheelchairs for people.

    Really here, make it a frame that can fit on their legs. People could like stand up and move around...Cool it be.

    They'll never let them be "autonomous" (talking "robot cops" or even "robot soldiers").....from ED-209 to the Terminators...


    the public will NEVER accept autonomous robots who are armed.
