Scientists Have Created A Flying Robot That Can Ride A Skateboard, Balance On A Slackline

Scientists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and Northeastern University in Boston are back at it, creating a robot named LEONARDO, short for LEgs ONboARD drOne, or LEO. LEO stands at 2.5 feet tall and is the first robot to achieve seamless integration of walking and flying.

LEO, a bipedal robot, does this by using its human-like knee, hip and ankle joints along with its rotor blades for arms.

These features allow LEO to not only walk, hop, and fly, it can also ride a skateboard and balance itself on a slackline.
