CES 2014: Jumping Sumo: Jumping Drone leaps into our hearts1:02 /
Jumping Sumo: Parrot's newest drone can leap up to 80cm, and is fitted with a camera.
Every year, robots get slightly more powerful, and this year they've gained an extra superpower, the ability to jump. We are taking a look at the Parrot's jumping sumo robot. You pilot the jumping sumo using your smartphone. You can see on the front here it has a built in camera so you can check out the high leaping action on an iPad or on your mobile. It's got this spring motor in the back. I'm told that it jumps about 80 centimeters which is pretty impressive. It's got these big chunky wheels so it shouldn't take any damage when it's leaping around all over your house. You charge this bad boy up by plugging a micro USB into this space and it has these two cool glowing LED eyes as well. Parrot tells me that this is gonna be on sale later this year, but sadly there's no word on price at the moment. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET at CES 2014, check out CES. CNET.com for more.
