Researches at the University of Tokyo developed a robot that can jump like a frog. The video of robot frog Mowgli jumping is amazing. You can see it below.

Mowgli can jump about 50cm in the air and land for instance on an office chair. Looks like the Japanese robot researchers are looking for new challenges now that walking is solved. I still remember seeing the early bipedal robot projects about 20 years ago on TV. Mowgli is also still early stage, but in a couple of years we might be seeing robots jumping around.

Mowgli the robot frog is 120cm tall and his jumps are powered by pneumatics.
