RiSE, The Wall-Climbing Bot

By David Ponce

Again, this is one of those posts that’s low by way of details. Nevetheless, I thought y’all could get a kick out of watching this lovely robot crawl up and down a wall. It’s called RiSE, and is allegedly the child of some DARPA funded research. Thinking heads at Pennsylvania, Carnegie Mellon, Berkeley and Stanford Universities soaked up the delicious DARPA money, and produced what looks like a giant robotic cockroach on crack.

I’m not exactly sure what its intended use is, though it’s my belief no one should go without a wall-crawling bot.

    They missed a huge opportunity by not making it silver and calling it a CyberMat.
