This strange disk robot moves like a stranded magikarp

We have recently seen a lot of disturbing movements from robots. The robot of Boston Dynamics jumped into the heart and nightmare of the Internet with its smooth movements. They can even parkour, which is good sometimes. Okay, here are some robots that move more smoothly, a bit.

Chinese software robotics engineers showed some impressive movements of this weird black floppy-not that kind-if politely, it resembles a manta ray, but more like a carp using splashing in the action. Presumably, they are different from Magikarp in that they work by changing the distribution of fluid in the flexible disk. This allows them to make fast, controlled, directional jumps. This means that even if there are obstacles, they can move in any direction, including upwards.
