Meet the SandFlea, an 11 pound robot that can jump over buildings

As it’s the weekend, I presume that you are more interested in small, leaping robots than deep dives into the differences in ad targeting between Google and Bing. At least I am.

That in mind, may I present the SandFlea, a small robot built by BostonDynamics. It’s diminutive  and it leaps over buildings. It’s in fact one of the coolest things I have seen in some time. According to the company, the little robot can leap roughly 25 times on a single charge. It would be interesting to know what the total height gained across 25 jumps would be for the SandFlea.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

I’ll spare you a paragraph of drivel about how we are seeing a renaissance of hardware work in the technology scene, and just get to it:

BostonDynamics has in fact built a number of interesting robotic creatures. Yes, they will haunt you tonight as you sleep.

Shh. Here's some distraction
