Future Robotics

We have seen the future of robotics, and it’s Waalbot. This wall-climbing robot sports “two legs with three micro-suction adhesive pods each, letting one pod stay attached to the wall while the other two rotate forward.” Video after the break. Click here for first picture in gallery.

It is also an autonomous bot with an RF transmitter on it’s back, allowing for wireless control. Even with this low complexity structure, unlike most other climbing robots, the robot is agile and fast with a small turning radius and plane transitions.
