Hyundai has shown off a small model of a vehicle it says can activate robotic legs to walk at 3mph (5km/h) over rough terrain.

The Elevate was created using a combination of Hyundai's latest EV technology with the power of robotics.

The Elevate concept is based on a modular electric vehicle platform, which Hyundai says includes the capability to switch out different bodies for specific situations.

Former PC Star Brooks Traded to Chicago
So will Selden, who actually shot a better percentage from 3-point range last season (40.2 percent) than Holiday ever has. Per Shams Charania of The Athletic, Brooks is seeking a different destination as Chicago doesn't plan to keep him.

Walk on the wild side: Elevate heads off-road. The "Elevate" (so-called for reasons that ought to be obvious, if you've already scrolled through the pics) is what Hyundai calls a "Ultimate Mobility Vehicle", or UMV.

Elevate is Hyundai's first-ever vehicle with four moveable legs that give the auto an insect-like look. "They have to go the rest of the way by foot", said Hyundai vice-president John Suh. However, it is worth mentioning that according to Hyundai the Elevate can walk "in mammalian and reptilian style gaits for omnidirectional motion".

Hyundai says that the Elevate can drive at highway speeds like a conventional auto.

USA officials head to China for high-level trade talks next week - Beijing
USA president Donald Trump has threatened a sharp hike in USA tariffs on Chinese goods if China didn't yield to his requests. They criticize his tactics but echo USA complaints about Chinese industrial policy and market barriers.

Due to its unique mechanism, Elevate can climb a 1.5-meter wall, step over a 1.5-meter gap, walk over diverse terrain and achieve a 4.5-meter wide track width, while keeping its body and passengers fully level.

And it's not just disaster zones, the vehicle makers hope to also help people living with disabilities that don't have access to ramps, they could use the auto as a taxi that could walk up to their front door, level itself, and allow their wheelchair to roll right in. "Imagine a auto stranded in a snow ditch just 10 feet off the highway being able to walk or climb over the treacherous terrain, back to the road potentially saving its injured passengers - this is the future of vehicular mobility", said designer David Byron from Hyundai's design partner, Sundberg-Ferar.

The Hyundai Elevate has been designed with Sundberg-Ferar, located in Metro Detroit, a product innovation studio specializing in innovation strategy, design research, industrial design, user interface, engineering and prototyping. We are talking about the Hyundai Elevate concept showcased at the ongoing Consumer Electronics Show 2019. "The possibilities are limitless".
