Sand Flea Boston Dynamics

It can leap tall buildings in a single bound, roll over just about any terrain that lays ahead of it, and at days end, it only weighs in at 11 lbs. This is the Sand Flea, a small four-wheeled robot that was developed by Boston Dynamics, and one that is currently being tested by the U.S. military. Under normal conditions the Sand Flea operates like a normal remote control car, however when confronted with an obstacle the Flea simply flies over it without a care in the world.
