    I wouldn`t call it a robot. It`s just a machine that jumps. Cool yes, but about as complex as an electric toothbrush.

    Uuurrrmm... it said it doesn`t land on its feet so i don`t count it as a jump, more a spring with cogs...

    not a robot.
    i had something like this before,
    those things they use to have in happy meals, the dog thing? the one that:
    you wind it up
    it springs and does a backflip in mid air!!!!!!!!
    and the thing im talking about can go much higher than that. mine went like 3 feet in the air, and it did backflips, and it landed on its feet. why dont you attatch a camera to that and send it to mars?

    Alright! Now, we not only have to worry about locusts destroying crops, we might have to worry about swarms of rebel robot locusts, too!

    That`s pretty neat. And it WILL be a robot once it`s able to right itself and communicate!!

    Sorry TheDoc2044, smigbaafm beat you to it.
