Disney’s VertiGo robot


An incredible four-wheeled robot has been created by Disney – and it can climb walls.

Disney Research Zurich and Swiss technology institute ETH have built this gravity-defying robot, named VertiGo, which is a rather neat spin on a traditional remote control car.

While the wheels stay on the surface at all times, ‘drivers’ can adjust the robot’s propellers to make it flip onto walls, helping it defy gravity.

Disney Research Zurich said: “By transitioning from the ground to a wall and back again, VertiGo extends the ability of robots to travel through urban and indoor environments”.
