Boston Dynamics has equipped the Handle robot with a suction cup for lifting loads

Handle introduced in 2017, the company calls it "a very clever robot on wheels." The robot overcomes any

uneven surfaces coming down coveredsnow slopes, and his legs, wheels work independently of each other: if a relief changes dramatically under one, this will not prevent him from moving further. Handle is able to jump over obstacles and even jump on meter tables.

In the new modification, engineers removed the topthe limbs of the robot, replacing them with a suction cup, and also added a counterweight to the back of the device. It allows the robot to lift loads weighing up to 15 kg while maintaining stability.

Boston Dynamics has previously taught its robot, Spot, to dance under funk - at least it falls into the rhythm of the song Uptown Funk by the musicians Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars.
