Galileo Robot gets around on both wheels and tank tracks

Some robots have wheels, while others have tank tracks. The Galileo Robot? It has both.

Yes, while the Galileo normally rolls around on a set of four wheels, when the terrain calls for it, it has the ability to turn those wheels into treads. The developer of the robot, Galileo Mobility Instruments, is using the setup to create a wheelchair that's able to climb and decent stairs, which is something we can get behind.
