Thursday Video - Cycling Robot

The bicycling robot raising his arm after stopping
A Japanese researcher in artificial intelligence has developed a robot that can ride a bicycle. The robot rides it just like a human would: His legs turn the pedals and he uses his arms to steer with the handlebars and maintain balance. When he comes to a stop, he puts his feet on the ground. Currently, remote control is used to instruct the robot where to go. His creator would like to make the robot smart enough to ride on his own with no input from a human. The robot currently rides a fixed gear bike. Maybe he'll get a bike with a derailleur soon.
