New Robot Gives Superman A Run For His Money: VIDEO


First the tech company Boston Dynamics brought us the immovable, tarantula-esque Big Dog robot that can run over rocky terrain. Then they brought a super fast automaton Cheetah. Now the company had created Sand Flea, a device that can jumps about 30 feet. Put them all together and we humans are in serious trouble.

Watch Sand Flea in action, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. I'm torn between saying "very cool" and "very unsettling." Now I'm going to be worried that I have little robots on my roof. I really don't need that worry on top of everything else! :-)

  4. It should be "can jump", not "can jumps".

  5. Um, that tarantula thing does not look very "immovable" to me.
