A series of leaps for robot-kind

This running, jumping and climbing robot is the X-RHex Lite (XRL) from the University of Pennsylvania’s Kod*lab.

There’s no commentary or soundtrack to distract from the remarkable number of feats performed in the footage.
XRL itself is described as a design study, building on a previous robot – the X-RHx – using a slightly different configuration to simplify fabrication, while minimising weight.
