Engineers Just Created the First Untethered, One-Legged Robot

Standard

A linear elastic actuator in parallel (LEAP) gives thrust to the robot’s hopping power. The mechanism is a system of coil actuators, springs, and motors. Contrary to previous hopping bots, LEAP is self-contained, allowing for “an untethered, energetically autonomous single-legged hopping robot,” according to the study.
