We spotted this little guy on the floor of CES and immediately were reminded that robots are bound to kill off humanity one day.
Sure it looks harmless right now — riding its little bike while balancing perfectly — but wait until the horrifying near-future where it's wielding rocket launchers, machine guns and a taste for human flesh.
Drama aside, this isn't actually a robot you can buy right now. No, instead this is a tech demo from the guys and girls at technology component company muRata.
It uses a series of gyroscopes to keep itself upright and actuators to move the legs back and forth on the bike. It knows where to go thanks to a wand that the controller moves back and forth.
Nifty, yet terrifying.
