Boston Dynamics : Sand Flea Jumping Robot

Descripion :

We wrote an article recently about : Boston Dynamics : Changing Your Idea of What Robots Can Do. A really interesting topic with full references to all of these High - Tech robots made by Boston Dynamis, all of these years, including specific information, pictures, videos, testing results, their future vision etc.

Today we present to you their latest robot named Sand Flea.

Sand Flea is an incredible 11-lb robot with one trick up its sleeve : Normally it drives like an RC car, but when it needs to it can jump 30 feet into the air. An onboard stabilization system keeps it oriented during flight to improve the view from the video uplink and to control landings. 

Current development of Sand Flea is funded by the The US Army's Rapid Equipping Force
