IEEE Spectrum features story on jumping robots
This robot jumps by converting stored chemical energy to gas in a chemical reaction.
There's a nice story about jumping robots being developed in Assistant Professor Sarah Bergbreiter (ME/ISR) on the IEEE Spectrum website. Included is a cool video of the robots jumping.
