Watch This Adorable Gymnastic Bot Totally Stick The Landing

The last time we checked in on the state of robot gymnasts they performed admirably on the horizontal bar, but fell out of medal contention with a laughably horrible dismount.

Three years later it looks like they're moving closer to Olympic glory with this little bot that can perfectly stick a landing after performing a mid-air somersault. It's not quite a gold medal performance, but with a sparkly leotard, a hard luck story, and another year of smile development, it could easily win a bronze — and our hearts. [YouTube via Automaton]
