“Athlete of the Future” – JPL engineers built a futuristic robot that may one day go to the moon. I like how the operator operates it as if they were standing in the center on the bot and on the moon… – [via] Link.

    This robot of JPL is suspiciously similar of my original concept robot X-VEAAT eXperimental Vehicle Explorer Adaptable

    All Terrain designed, contructed on 2004 and presented (before of ATHLETE) in Campus-Party 2005 and 2006 of Valencia,

    Spain.

    David Calkins, president of Robotics Society of America and interest for my design… was in Campus Party 2006 in Valencia and see my robot and idea.

    see my robot in this pages..

    P.D.: for me.. ATHLETE of JPL-NASA is a copy of my original idea, legwheel hibrid.
