Meet Salto-1P, the jumping robot


Salto is a leaping robotic that’s all coronary heart (and legs). A undertaking initially launched in 2017 this tiny robotic thrusts itself up and down and backwards and forwards like a crazed grasshopper, leaping with absolute precision and a great deal of velocity.

Created by the UC Berkeley’s Biomimetic Millisystems Lab, this little robotic makes use of rotor-based thrusters and bouncy legs to do its tips.

Salto, which stands for “Saltatorial Locomotion on Terrain Obstacles,” is designed to imitate saltatorial – leaping – animals like kangaroos and bush infants.
