    Holy crap, that's cool. I got a chill when it was crawling up the dude's leg.

    That reminds me a bit of this one the JApanese have made:

    Not a pole climber but it swims and move on land swiftly.

    Very cool. Looks like they have some challenges with power/controller at the size of the body they are using (hence the tether). If they can overcome that it looks like a very practical robot. I wonder how they would implement sensors to allow it to be capable of actually going where it needed to. Seems like most sensors would get confused by that type of motion.

    ok, I guess I could expand the YouTube "about" section to see the website

    Which robot is the one crawling up the pipes and the leg and rolling around on the ground?
