Scientists have created a robot that can navigate on a skateboard and fly, standing at 2.5 feet high and using its legs to navigate a tightrope and skateboard, or operate thrusters to fly through the air. LEOIt was built from parts of robots and drones that were worked on in a lab by engineers from the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.
According to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, in addition to improving stability when walking on a tightrope, the propeller-based thrusters also allow the 2.5-foot-high robot to take to the air and fly.
The team says the tiny robot can implement robotic tasks that are currently difficult for robots and drones to perform, including working in hazardous and hard-to-reach environments.
The team did not say when the robot would be available for commercial use, or how much it would cost, because it is still in the research and development stage.
Weighing in at 5.6 pounds, this bipedal robot is inspired by birds and insects that are able to switch seamlessly between walking, flying, or even crawling on the ground.
The robot can be used for some delicate activities, such as repairing parts of a space station, which are too dangerous for human workers, and require multiple types of ground and air robots, but the robot can do the job alone.
These robots also manipulate real-world terrain using the same type of movement as humans, including jumping, running and climbing.
