Hopping robots will be used in combat



The Futurist : Magazine
Small, portable, and light, Precision Urban Hoppers are mainly intended to aid the U.S. Army in urban combat and help decrease soldier casualties. Guided by GPS, they can bound over obstacles up to 25 feet in height and deliver various “payloads,” including small video cameras and microphones for surveillance.
