Disney's Fearless BASE Jumping Robot

Called the Paraswift, this autonomous 'bot can climb smooth walls using a low pressure vortex, and then leaps from them all by its lonesome before deploying a chute and living the climb another day. It even has a tiny camera on board to record the jump (or splat). Video!

Early tests are limited to a mere 30 feet, but that will seemingly scale with time. This is Disney-funded, after all. The Mouse is unstoppable. [Geeky Gadgets via DVICE]
