Robot Gymnast Isn’t the Superstar We Thought In This Blooper Reel (But It’s Still Adorable)

PHEW. So we've got a reprieve before the robopocalypse.

As any gymnast knows, you’re going to fall down a lot before you perfect a jump and stick the landing perfectly. We didn’t think that kind of thing applied to robots, but apparently it does. That’s good, because we were pretty worried that Hinamitetu’s bot was going to put all those Olympic athletes out of a job. Luckily it’s still got some kinks to work out.
