Check out our motorized pogo stick at http://www.bugparts.com/atomicants.html With the right fuel mix and someone daredevil enough to ride it,jumps of nine or more feet are possible....

I'd love to see a self contained, autonomous version of a pogo-bot. They would be super as lookout sentries, hard to knock over. I've figure out how one could be self righting too. :)
