Movie S1
This movie depicts the animated simulation results, as in Fig. 2. The first sequence shows the evolution of body shape for the rigid top, gradient top, and flexible top robots as the volume of the gas inside the body expands. The second sequence compares the impact behavior of the same three cases.
Movie S2
This movie presents the results of experimental testing, as in Fig. 3. The first sequence compares the impact behavior of the rigid top and gradient top robots. The second sequence depicts the robot performing a targeted jump off of an angled surface, and includes high-speed video of the takeoff. The final sequence shows the robot performing a directional jump on a flat surface.
