Robotic Gizmos

Remember Salto? It is a high flying robot that was introduced by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley in 2016. It has come a long way since. It is now capable of bouncing in place like a pogo stick and jumping over obstacles. It can reach a speed of 10mph and jump up to 4ft.

Salto’s single leg is modeled after those of the galago. It can navigate complex terrain that may be impossible to cross for regular robots with a series of quick jumps.
