Bipedal Cycling Robot
I love robots. It may sound cliche, but I believe they are the future. Anyone who doesn't is just silly. Masahiko Yamaguchi created this breathtaking bicycling robot which can balance, steer and correct itself. The possibilities for this kind of technology are immense. Imagine a future where newspaper and mail delivery people are all replaced with this technology, and that's just scratching the surface. Yamaguchi's next step is to make his robot direct itself without the use of a remote control. Did you know Japan owns over half of the worlds robots? They have created them out of a necessity to maintain their economic and social system on the island.
