California Institute of Technology develops bipedal robots with unique modes of transportation that can play skateboarding and rope walking

According to CNET, Leonardo is a bipedal robot with a unique mode of transportation. Leonardo is the abbreviation for "LEgs ONboard drOne", but you can abbreviated it as LEO. LEO robots are the work of researchers at the California Institute of Technology, inspired in part by how birds flap their wings while jumping and walking with their legs. This robot can perform some tricky actions, such as walking rope and playing skateboard.

Researchers from the California Institute of Technology said in a statement, "LEO is the first robot to use multi jointed legs and propeller based thrusters to achieve precise control of its balance." The university shared a video in which LEO demonstrated how it blurred the boundary between humanoid robots and drones.

The team from California Institute of Technology published a paper on the robot in the journal Scientific Robotics on Wednesday. The versatility of LEO means that it can invoke its walking skills, flying abilities, or a combination of both based on terrain and targets. The California Institute of Technology describes LEO as having an "incredible balance".

After watching videos of Boston Dynamics researchers harassing their own robot works, you may wonder how LEO would respond. "Due to its propeller, you can use a lot of force to poke or urge LEO without actually knocking down the robot," said co-author Elena Sorina Lupu of the paper.

Researchers are already focusing on how to upgrade leg design to make LEO more energy-efficient and reduce reliance on propellers during walking. The team is still working to make it more autonomous so that it can evaluate its environment and decide how to navigate better.

The robotics team believes that this technology has potential prospects on Mars, as it may represent a new generation of rotary wing aircraft. This concept will be built upon the success of NASA's Ingenuity helicopter.
