There is a new version of Sand Flea, the amazing 11-pound radio-controlled car that can race and jump over buildings.

Developed by Boston Dynamics — the same guys who created the freaky freaky Big Dog — Sand Flea is being developed for the U.S. Army’s Rapid Equipping Force.

Soldiers would be able to use these little beasts to explore the battle field through all type of obstacles. This new version can actually jump 30 feet in the air (9.1 meters). Enough to get onto the roof of a tall building.

Originally funded by Darpa, Sand Flea uses an onboard stabilization system that “keeps it oriented during flight to improve the view from the video uplink and to control landings.” I really wish I could buy one of these.
DARPA is the way-out idea and technology incubator for the US Military.
