Cool Robot

I found this link today regarding a robot competition in Japan. There was a video made that highlighted the winner, and I must say, it's pretty amazing what this machine can do. I remember a few years back, a TV show on I think NOVA that said that scientists were struggling with robots having balance. The idea of a bi-pedal machine walking, or even standing was a long way away... enter 2006. It seems this problem has been solved, and although the "running" looks a bit off, it's an amazing accomplishment.
Check out the video here on YOUTUBE.com
