I’ve seen some pretty cool remote controlled robots in my day but this robot might be the coolest of them all. Watch the video below of the amazing robot called “Sand Flea”. The robot only weighs eleven pounds and doesn’t look to be very spectacular … but keep watching the video.
As you’ll see, this robot has an extreme talent: It can jump more than 25 feet in the air! I’m not sure of the science behind its jumping ability but it sure is impressive. Not only can it jump, it can land on any terrain without suffering damage.
This robot was created by Boston Dynamics and is funded by The United States Army’s Rapid Equipping Force. In the video, you can see how the robot is able to jump onto a building and jump onto a hill … skills that are very valuable in a robot used by the army.
Here is the jumping robot video:
