A new robot built at UC Berkeley is out to prove that size doesn't matter when it comes to leaping into the air. The Saltatorial Locomotion on Terrain Obstacles (or SALTO) robot might be compact, but that hasn't stopped it from boasting...Show More Summary
SALTO is a springy machine UC Berkeley researchers created by studying the insane hops of bush babies.
UC Berkeley’s new robot is the most vertically agile ever built – why is it so unnerving?
(University of California - Berkeley) Roboticists at UC Berkeley have designed a small robot that can leap into the air and then spring off a wall, or perform multiple vertical jumps in a row, resulting in the highest robotic vertical jumping agility ever recorded.
The secret to agile animals is their ability to make repetitive very high jumps, and Salto is the first robot that can do the same
The new robot, Salto (saltatorial locomotion on terrain obstacles), now "holds the record for highest robotic vertical jumping agility ever recorded," according to roboticists who created it at UC Berkeley.

In conflict zones, the most common killers of wildlife are not guns and bombs, but breakdowns in institutions, societies and economies, according to a study by researchers at UC Berkeley.
Back in February, seismologists at UC Berkeley released MyShake, an app that passively monitors for seismic activity, both watching for earthquakes and warning users if one is underway. In the months since its introduction, the app has outperformed its creators’ expectations, detecting over 200 earthquakes in more than ten countries. Read More

With the Electoral College set on Dec. 19 to cement the results of Donald Trump's presidential win, UC Berkeley statistician Philip Stark is calling for an audit to double-check that hackers did not manipulate the results.
(University of California - Berkeley) A new study from UC Berkeley found that tissue health and repair dramatically decline in young mice when half of their blood is replaced with blood from old mice. The study argues against the rejuvenating properties of young blood and points to old blood, or molecules within, as driving the aging process.
