Are you a movies buff? If yes, then this idea isn’t new to you – this gadget reminds me of transformers, i,e a vehicle with legs like a grasshopper, that is generally the ‘bad guys’ vehicle.
The Tokyo Institute of Technology has created the robotic grasshopper that is similar to a grasshopper and its movement.
The device has four legs and can jump a distance of four feet forward and up to a foot in height.
Perhaps this robot grasshopper concept could very well be the solution to the huge traffic jams that we experience everyday.
