also, the skies aren't permanently clear for most places in the world...(might be all, but i don't know if all deserts have sandstorms or not >.>)
forgot to post another advantage, 4 legged vehicles can turn much quicker, and sharper than any aerial vehicle. or even compared to something with wheels.
@bodycount: its mostly dependant on the processor and the programming...mechanical is pretty simple in this robot.
EDIT: watched the video again and noticed how it doesnt actually have feet... that makes this robot a lot easier to programming and less complex mechanics...Edited by Driftingnfsc3 - 3/7/12 at 7:10am
