I read about this a couple days ago. Very cool. Interesting engineering solution to the problem.

I was initially thinking they might have modeled the movement based on that of the sea urchin, but after viewing the video, their solution is brilliant.

Could this technology be applied to save people from high rise building fires? Boing, boing?

The proposed robots are only a few pounds, humans are much heavier, to scale this up to the size to protect a body falling from a building would probably mean they would have to be huge and therefore impractical.
