Sand Flea Jumping Robot Vehicle jumps 30 Feet

Sand Flea is an 11 pound remote controlled robotic vehicle with a special trick up its sleeve. Normally it drives like an R/C car, but when it needs to it can jump 30 feet into the air. An onboard stabilization system keeps it oriented during flight to improve the view from the video uplink and to control landings. Current development of Sand Flea is funded by the The US Army's Rapid Equipping Force.

Watch the amazing Sand Flea in action in a video below.
