Jollbot - Rock & Roll
Rhodri Armour and his team from the University of Bath's Center for Biomimetic & Natural Technologies in England created Jollbot, who can roll over smooth terrain and jump over obstacles. Hoping that the odd-looking robot will be a part of the space race, its unique shape allows it to go in any direction without getting stuck in potholes (or craters.) Weighing less than two pounds, it has less chance of injury than other exploration robots. After launch, it can go as high as 20". Imagine what it can do in space.
