Another robot that can walk on water

Strider water robot

Actually not the same one as that water striding robot that some scientists at MIT created last year, there is actually another insectbot which is able to walk on water, this one courtesy of researchers at Carnegie Mellon's NanoRobotics Lab. This one is just half an inch in size, with eight 2-inch steel-wire legs coated with a special water-repelling plastic. Someone needs to mate one of these with the EcoBot II, that insect-eating tobot from yesterday.
