Boston Dynamics has a new robot.

This week, Google-owned Boston Dynamics released a video of its newest robot. Named Handle, the bot weighs in at 100 pounds, stands at six and a half feet tall, and can jump four feet in the air. And, like many of the Boston Dynamics’ robots that came before it, it is absolutely as terrifying as it sounds. The robot moves using a combination of humanoid feet and wheels to allow for maximum mobility.

Handle can only travel for 15 miles on a single battery charge, so in the event of a robot takeover you could probably outrun it. If you’ve been hitting the gym or own a bicycle.
