Roachlike robot can find earthquake survivors (video)

Researchers cook up a robot that moves like a roach and can be used to find earthquake survivors.

The latest creation from U.C. Berkeley's robotics researchers, DASH Plus Wings scampers along at 1.3 meters per second and climbs 17 degree inclines. SmartPlanet's Sumi Das get a close look at the mini-machine which also shed light on the evolution of flight in animals.
