Few robots can jump with the agility of Salto. The robot was designed and built this year by engineers at UC Berkeley to navigate rough terrain in search and rescue missions. It was modeled after the African primate, galago, which has a unique ability to take a series of high jumps in a row. Watch the video above to see Salto in action.
