  • It was just last year that we heard about the Ascento 2, a self-balancing, two-legged, wheeled, hopping robot.
  • Speaking of which, while the Ascento 2 runs for about 1.5 hours per charge, the Pro can reportedly go for a whopping eight hours.
  • The Pro also has larger wheels than its predecessor, allowing it more easily roll over small obstacles, plus it’s faster – it has a top speed of 12 km/h (7.5 mph), as compared to the Ascento 2’s 8 km/h (5 mph).
