wow... Sand Flea Robotic Car can jump over 30 feet straight up!!!

Holy crap this is amazing. But if the idea is get this car on the roof so it can do some patroling with a video camera, wouldn't it be just as easy to throw it up there?

Sand Flea is an 11-lb robot with one trick up its sleeve: Normally it drives like an RC car, but when it needs to it can jump 30 feet into the air. An onboard stabilization system keeps it oriented during flight to improve the view from the video uplink and to control landings. Current development of Sand Flea is funded by the The US Army's Rapid Equipping Force. For more information visit
