Hunter's comment

It is a small robot which is useful for rough terrain surfaces. It has 6 legs and moves wisely. Rhex has a height of 14cm. It weighs 12kg and it is capable of carrying 2kg of payloads.

A battery powered robot which has electric actuation. It contains a teleoperation camera and a LED lights on the front.

RHex is a six-legged robot with remarkable mobility on rough terrain. Independently controlled legs produce specialized gaits that propel it over rough terrain with minimal operator input. RHex traverses rock fields, mud, sand, vegetation, railroad tracks, telephone poles, and stairways.

Pros.

Non.

Cool Hunt mate.

Most of the robot are two legged and they can't reach to the tough places but this one has 6 legs to overcome this problem. Due to six legs It can climb any thing that comes it's on it's way, it also can carry 2 Kg weight.

Boston Dynamics has the best prototypes of humaniids and complete robots, one of my favorite ATLAS, which can do a backfip. and different tasks.
They also have the fastest quadrupedal bots in the world like the Wild cat.

Congratulations!
