Youtuber hinamitetu has engineered a squadron of robot gymnasts capable of executing flips, handsprings, and high-bar acrobatics. Bots capable of entry into other artistic events are sure to follow. In this, his latest video, one of hinamitetu's creations performs a flawless quadruple backflip and sticks the landing like Kerri Strug. Please, nobody tell DARPA about this.
Here's a highlight reel from the Horizontal Bar Gymnast-bot. Don't let the peppy soundtrack fool you – this machine is not to be underestimated.
Even the bloopers are impressive:
