Not Our Circus Jobs!: Bipedal Robot Can Walk A Tightrope
Japanese robotics lover Dr. Guero (of robot-riding-a-bicycle infamy) is back at it, this time with a two-legged balancing robot that can walk a tightrope. It's creepy how human-like it balances itself by waving its little stick thingies around. "Those are its arms." YES -- its arms. Remind me to shoot those off so it can't walk a powerline onto my roof.
Hit the jump for the video. WARNING: Shitty techno soundtrack.
Thanks to Caroline and trevor, who agree the only circus job robots should have is getting shot out of a cannon. Preferably into a brick wall.
