Zhao’s robot manages to achieve a jump height of 36”, using frog-like legs and a windup to propel itself into the air. However in order for the robot to achieve continuous jumping, Zhao has managed to create a kickstand for the robot which allows for it to pick itself up after it falls on its side after a jump. The robot is powered by a single pager motor which means that the robot can be small and light. This also lead to the robot being efficient and only requiring a charge every 285 jumps. Check out the video below to see the robot in action.
