Question: What if you added more carbon fiber sides to this jumper. Instead of having four connectors with the rubber bands, what if you had 8 or 16 connectors with more rubber bands so it could store more kinetic energy right? I know that it would add weight but its counter balance of force would outdo the extra weight no? I am probably wrong but I am wondering if anyone can explain.
Anticipating the day we can jump to the moon
Best jumper in the animal kingdom by what measurement?
Jump from standstill: Kilpspringer - 3-3.6m
Ratio to body weight: Froghopper - 400x body height
Ratio to body size: Flea - 220x body Length, 150x body height.
Is it legal? Practically, it's like abullet
If they had to add a chunk of steel anyways, why not just have a slightly larger battery and motor instead?
daaDuC1kbds&t=2m04s 2:04 APPLE IS SCAMMING US! WHY DOES IT ONLY COUNT EVERY THIRD CENTISECOND! THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!
now that is engineering
daaDuC1kbds&t=5m18s 5:18 tardigrade would like a word with you.
Doesn't the mantis shrimp have a latch-like mechanism which stores energy before release too?
"Jumping may seem like a niche skill" - Goes onto explain that the only practical usage is not even on this planet and that too as the pet flying squirrel of a souped-up moon buggie.
the real question is is this legally a firearm
Not sure why you keep calling this a jumping robot. because its not even close. its a jumping Device its only function is to jump robots are well.. Robots categorised in many ways strictly jumping is not one of them. it could be a jumping machine at most, but even then its not a machine lol just a small device made from rubber bands and plastic
So at daaDuC1kbds&t=9m25s 9:25 you’re telling me we have real life freakin spidermen?!?
Why can't we use this model for sending rockets to space?
Ukraine army just called, they want to engineer this into a grenade device
Strap it to your wrist
И зачем это?
You just said that animals jump like grasshoppers and kangaroos. And you said no mass must be lost to count as a jump. But an animal is constantly using nutrients to make that motion. Like Adenosine Triphosphate, so they actively lose their small amount of mass while making the "jumping" motion. In conclusion, animals don't jump.
