robot gymnast doing Kovacs

Gymbits posted an update on that Japanese robot that swings on a bar.

Uchimura watch out. Japanese robot enthusiast Hinamitetu has a mechanical competitor improving rapidly.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

I saved this video to use as an example of the biomechanics of swing and release.

Long term goal of this project? A Cylon gymnast?

… The intermediate step would be a robot assisted gymnast?
