The Sand Flea Robot has Bigger Hops Than Lebron James

Michael Jordan, King James, and Blake Griffin have got nothing on Boston Dynamic’s sand flea robot when it comes to jumping skills.  This  drone, which will one day be used in our various theaters of war, can make a 30 ft. vertical leap easier than a bus full of fatties can take out a Chinese food buffet.  This achievement in robotic hops is made possible by the inclusion of a CO2 tank, which  propels the 4-wheeled bot into the air.  Obviously, there’s much more to this little guy’s jumping skills, but most of us are probably too dumb to understand it, so just check out the video below and get your “Holy sh*t!” on.  You have a new fear of jumping robots taking over the planet…
