Fun stuff, to be sure, but why somebody would engineer something bipedal baffles my mind.

Brilliant. Biped, quadraped and bi-wheeled. It shows how far robotics has advanced over the past few years. Thanks for that UA.

The challenge of balance I think and they are very successful in that regard.

Damn, they're getting good. I note they have just been bought by Hyundai. Wonder what they're gonna do with them?

I just watched a vid that someone sent to me of some Chinese Robots that look human and were dancing to some very nice music. How ever I do not believe they were real. The vid reminded me too much of Fred and Ginger dancing than robots. The movements were too fluid and precise to have been programed.

Here is the URL for the vid.

As far as I am concerned this is fake and these are real people and not droids or robots.

I agree with you, Fred. These weren't robots - too fluid and quick for them to be.
