Why does being miniature instantly make things adorable? This miniature cycling robot is no exception. The tiny robot can cycle, balance, steer and correct itself.
The man behind the robot is inventor Masahiko Yamaguchi. “I’m interested in artificial intelligence, and in that context, I think intelligence and skills have equal value,” said Yamaguchi. “So my purpose in creating this robot was to pursue intelligence from the skills side. While I was thinking of suitable topics, my local science museum demonstrated a cycling robot. So I decided to consider cycling as the skill, and build a bicycle robot.”
