Meet SALTO: a cool little robot that can jump higher and faster than other robots. It can jump better than a human and perform multiple vertical jumps in a row. It has a vertical jumping agility of 1.75 meters per second, surpassing a bullfrog’s jumping agility.
The robot weighs only 100 grams, measuring 26cm tall. Its design is inspired by the galago. While other robots can perform higher jumps in a single leap, SALTO is capable of performing multiple jumps to get higher. Roboticists at UC Berkeley are behind this cool robot.
