I want one!
How long before sightings of this end up in the "We are not alone" thread?
For 90% of applications where you need a mobile robot this is the way to go. Instead of using limbs, with all the balance and synchronization and terrain issues involved
Robotic limbs are a bit more energy efficient, I would imagine. Especially if it's a heavier robot.
Pretty cool though.
Bet that'll be useful for surveillance cameras in remote places.
Looks like it would fit well in a soccer or basketball.
Looks too big to look up girl's skirts.
The guy running the big reveal looks like the Japanese Scarecrow.
If the ching chongs have that thing I wonder what good old Uncle Sam has up his sleeve.....probably nothing spherical.
The gMAV is similar, it's VTOL like that it just doesn't have the ball skeleton.
But the one in that video is like a hobby shop version of a real gMAV
I was sure we had something similar but the spherical
design seems like it may be useful. Great for landing on
rough terrain and still be maneuvered into a position to
provide useful video and other info. The design has potential.
