Whaaaaaaaat? Robot walks a tightrope (to intense trance soundtrack)

I think we can all agree that robots are pretty ruddy cool but this video takes the proverbial biscuit. Think about the extraordinary feat of skill and balance it takes for a person to walk across a tightrope and then imagine having to recreate that in a robot. Exactly. You’ll need to get beyond the slightly panic-inducing trance soundtrack, and as ever the YouTube comments remind us that some people are NEVER impressed (i.e. “I thought you said walk not slide”) but this is sure to be one of the most extraordinary tinges you’ll see today.
