Handle is a mobile manipulation robot designed for logistics. Handle
autonomously performs mixed SKU pallet building and depalletizing after
initialization ...


Cool thanks BillK!

It is difficult for me to watch this video without immediately envisioning
the obvious: racing these two guys against each other.

I don't mean racing them around a track...  heeeeeyyyy, that's an idea!

Well, OK that too, but we could have races to see who could build the
highest stack of boxes in the least time, that kinda stuff.

But about the other, we could race a coupla these sonsa bitches around a
roller derby track, or several of them for that matter, and make it fair
game to bump the others or to hurl the other bastard off the track and stuff
like that.  I would buy a ticket to see it.
