No, we don’t have robots catering to our every need just yet like you might see in “I, Robot.”
But based off how one robot operates that was built by Boston Dynamics, we might just be getting closer.
In the video you can see how mobile the metallic “creature” is and how it can rotate its body into many directions.
It’s called Handle, and according to Boston Dynamics, the research robot “stands 6.5 feet 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.”
It demonstrates impressive strength by lifting and carrying 100 pounds of weight with ease, jumps on a table, and goes rolling down a hill in snow staying upright.
Based off the jetpack that was shown off recently, it’s clear that technology is just plain cool.
