LEONARDO is a flying biped robot

LEONARDO  is flying bipedal robot that uses synchronised control of drone-like propellers and legged joints. You can think of as “basic version” of Atlas with propellers .

This lightweight walking robot it’s closer to a a drone than a typical bipedal bot — because it’s literally got a set of drone propellers instead of arms.

It might look like a helium-filled balloon on legs, but the idea is to make a robot walk as naturally a human. And looks like it can!

Using  thrusters might eventually help it do a complex actions like jumping — perhaps even on Mars.
