Leaping Lizards!

What can a robot learn from a lizard? According to UC Berkeley biologists and engineers, quite a bit.

The latest episode of UCTV Prime Cuts shows how these scientists are studying the way lizards use their tails to keep them stable as they make some pretty astounding leaps (caught on video, of course).

Why, you ask? They’re looking for clues on how to improve the mobility of the robots they’re designing for use in search, rescue and disaster situations.

Trust us, you’ll want to see these reptilian athletes in action. Watch Leaping Lizards – UCTV Prime Cuts.
