Although we've been lagging in robotics here in the U.S., the techies at Carnegie Mellon and other well known Universities, continue to make strides at RISES (Robotics in Scansorial Environments). They have developed a crawling robot that can tread up vertical spaces. DARPA's Biodynotics Biologically Inspired Multifunctional Dynamic Robotics (BIODYNOTICS) is funding the program. This robot can actually come in handy on the next reconnaissance mission. Watch Video
