‘VertiGo’ Robot Car Scales Walls using Tilting Propellers

The VertiGo handles surprisingly well in the 90-degree transition from ground-to-wall without tipping backwards, the propellers immediately kicking in to ‘suspend’ the device against the wall. Check out the two videos below to get a glimpse of the robot along with its carbon fiber and 3D-printed components – and read more about the project (including a downloadable white paper) here.
