Several times, the robot accidentally bang it into walls or other objects that obstruct it. But it remained floating robot stable thanks to the 'onboard gyroscope' that are embedded in it.
Viewwit quoted from the LA Times, Thursday (10/27/2011), the machine is fairly light weight. Interestingly, once observed, the robot's body is apparently composed of scrap metal shelf components.
In the future, robots valued at USD 1 400 (about USD 12.6 million) will be developed as a robotic rescue. "Because of its ability to fly and land anywhere denan easy, this machine is expected to reach places that are difficult to reach other transportation," said one of the team's robot developers
