With a hop, a skip and a jump, high-flying robot leaps through obstacles with ease: Salto the jumping robot navigates an agility course and takes a jaunt down the sidewalk


First unveiled in 2016, Salto the jumping robot stands at little less than a foot, but can vault over three times its height in a single bound. Now researchers have equipped the robot with a slew of new skills, giving it the ability to bounce in place like a pogo stick and jump through obstacle courses like an agility dog. Salto can even take short jaunts outside, powered by radio controller.
