This video shows a conceptual design created by Sandia National Laboratories for their "Multi-Modal Vehicle Concept," which is a single unmanned system capable of flying, swimming, driving, and hopping across a variety of terrains and obstacles. Sandia's Intelligent Systems, Robotics, & Cybernetics (ISRC) department has built and conducted limited testing on conceptual hardware. According to researchers, testing has shown that the concept could soon be a reality.
