+ - Base-jumping robot throws itself off buildings->

Submitted by Sven-Erik
Sven-Erik (177541) writes "Adrenalin junkies, step aside: a new base-jumping robot can climb up buildings before deploying a paraglider to fly back down to earth. It is also equipped with an on-board video camera to film the jump.

The robot — named Paraswift — is a collaboration between Disney Research and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, and was initially built for entertainment purposes. But as the first compact robot that can both climb and fly, it has practical uses too, such as gathering aerial footage for 3D modelling systems."
