The World First Microbot That Can Jump Across The Surface Of Water

Researchers in China have successfully created a microbot that can repeatedly jump across the surface of water. Weighing at only 11 grams, the robot has a super water-repellant nickel foam coating to help the microbot’s legs to stay afloat with every 5.5 inch (14 cm) leap. The ability to leap will make the microbot more agile and better able to avoid obstacles it encounters on the water’s surface. [Engadget]
