Blast Off With These Amazing Nasa Robots!


The spiderbot prototype could fit in the palms of an adult's cupped hands. It steps over obstacles, scales rocks and reaches areas of interest that would normally be inaccessible to wheeled rovers running on flatter paths. Spiderbot uses a set of antennas as feelers to detect obstacles and terrain as it moves about on six spindly legs.
