Michigan State University's Tailbot is a diminutive daredevil video

Check out this video from grad students at Michigan State University -- it starts off a bit slowly, but it quickly picks up steam. It's a testament to the power of the robotic tail (not the first we've seen of that variety, incidentally), showing a 7.5-centimeter tall 'bot that can move, jump and maneuver in the air. Inspired by an article published in Nature last year, Tailbot's titular appendage lets it land on the correct side, stand up and lie down. Check out a video of the tiny adventurer after the break.
