Description

A jumping spider might help scientists build flying robots in the future. Researchers at the University of Manchester trained Kim, a regal jumping spider, to jump different distances and heights and found she adjusted her strategy accordingly. Scientists took a 3D scan of Kim and hope to replicate her anatomy and body movements in flying and jumping robots.
