Handle is 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.
No one can imagine the technologies that the military industrial complex has compared to this civilian company. It's been said before, black projects are light years ahead and are kept in the dark so tight that it would take an act of god to release to the public. This is a toy, but damn are we in for "new toys".
