Self jumping ball robot

Robot ball that gets over obstacles
  [vote for,

Watching a ball robot (see link) got me thinking of a self- jumping ball robot. Starts bouncing, adding energy into each jump perfectly timed, and then can send itself to hit a wall and push at it parkour style to reach even higher.

Also can self-jump, although it isn't intended to jump resonantly/increasingly-higher. [Vernon, Mar 12 2017]


       I'm just trying to work out if a self-jumping ball violates any laws of physics, but I don't think it does.

       Somehow, I'm not sure how, an anno by Ling has been deleted (by me?). Ling, Could you return it? jutta, if this is true, perhaps you can add a "Are you sure" to the [delete] action?   

       It's not a self-jumping ball, but rather a self-jumping ball- robot. Inside the ball, mechanical (Ling's link) or pneumatic (Vernon's) actions take place according to the computerized controller (mine).

       I can't return it... but it went something like this:   

       I had a similar idea, except I explained the mechanism as well, which works at any angle of rotation. See link.

       Nice link regarding Parkour, [pashute]. By the way, Parkour is one of the many things that I thought I invented (circa 1973), only to learn that other people were doing it as well.
