This roll-about robot designed at the University of Minnesota’s Center for Distributed Robotics can roll along the floor, stand upright and then take off helicopter style.
Land-based robots, such as this one, are relatively to cheap to design and build however, their movement can be easily blocked. That’s way having the capability to take off and overcome such objects, or cover large distances, makes this design so exciting.
There is clearly more work to do with the design of this land/air based robot (flight control appears to be difficult!) but things are certainly looking promising.
Watch as this humanoid-robot catches not just one ball, but two!
