Sand Flea Jumping Robot

Jumping robots, floating cinemas, musical jelly molds and more in our look at the web this week

It began with synchronized nano-copters and now it is jumping robots, the human race’s time may be coming to an end at the hand of our mechanized brethren. Funded by the US Army and developed by Boston Dynamics, the Sand Flea is a compact, four-wheeled robot that does more than just cruise the streets. With a thirty foot vertical, this little bot can jump not just through hoops, but on top of buildings, creating enormous potential for exploring urban areas.
