Researchers and MuddyBot2

Researchers (l-r) Richard Blob, Ben McInroe and Dan Goldman examine a robot named MuddyBot whose locomotion was inspired by the mudskipper. The robot has two limbs and a powerful tail to move though a trackway that can be raised to simulate granular slopes. Blob is a professor at Clemson University; McInroe was a student at Georgia Tech when the research was conducted, and Goldman is a professor at Georgia Tech (Credit: Rob Felt, Georgia Tech)
