Robot Climb

Just like bears, mountain lions and tigers you can now add robots to the list of things you can’t get away from by climbing a tree. 

Researchers from The Chinese University of Hong Kong have developed a robot with the ability to climb trees. Treebot has a basic frame with two sets of claws on both ends and uses a process that looks something like a caterpillar to move up and down a tree.  It can even negotiate tricky parts, like branches.
