Rise Robot

Boston Dynamics is back with another amazing bot –

RiSE is a small six-legged robot that climbs vertical terrain such as walls, trees and fences. RiSE’s feet have claws, micro-claws or sticky material, depending on the climbing surface. RiSE changes posture to conform to the curvature of the climbing surface and a fixed tail helps RiSE balance on steep ascents. RiSE is about 0.25 m long, weighs 2 kg, and travels 0.3 m/s.

See the site for a video demonstration where this little guy scales a building – Waalbot wall climbing robot

    So after reaching what height do they start calling it “High RiSE”?
