Robot of the Week#001: ROPID - jumping straight into the future!

A jumping robot has been built by scientists at Kyoto university in Japan.

It uses sensors to balance itself and responds to spoken instructions.

The droid has been named the ROPID, a combination of "rapid" and "robot".

Tomotaka Takahashi, who developed it, said he wanted to build a robot that entertained people rather than one that performed specific tasks.
