Boston Dynamics’ Sand Flea is an eleven pound bot equipped with a device that can launch it onto buildings, over compound walls, or through a second story window. It can jump around 25 times before it needs a recharge.

Development of this bot is continuing through the help of the US Army’s Rapid Equipping Force (REF). It’s an unassuming little bot that has explosive power — always interesting to see what the folks at Boston Dynamics are up to in robotics.
