Spider-Inspired Jumping Robot
Researchers from the University of Cape Town in South Africa have designed a robot called LEAP (Line-Equipped Autonomous Platform) to try to replicate the skills of the jumping spider. LEAP is made mostly of LEGO Technic and it is able to exert in-flight influence over an unspooling braided nylon line using a small DC motor.
