Awesome... well they release it to public. Its a danger to society. Someone will hurt themselves and then sue and then ruin the fun for the rest of them

They need to solve the impact issue, but this looks like a pretty good piece of kit.

Too bad it`s no good outside an urban environment. On soft ground all that force would be dispersed into the soil.

I wonder if they`ll ever be made to sell...probably too dangerous for kids because they`d make it jump onto each others heads from 30 feet up.

What is equally impressive, to me, is that it can fall so far without any apparent damage. But then I`m a science dork.

Pretty cool. I can`t decide, though, do I want the 12-gauge version or the .45 auto?

Excellent, now to hide in the roof of your building is not an option during the robot apocalypses :-)

Is like a grasshopper, briliant idea for pass obstacles. I think can result really helpfull for rovers on other planets.
