Robot Gymnast Sticks The Landing On Qaudruple Backflip

July 16, 2013


Seen here performing in somebody's decrepit basement circus, a little robot executes a quadruple backflip dismount from a horizontal bar. If you couldn't tell, this is a composite image I made using a couple in-flip action shots. Will robots start taking home gold in the Olympics? When reached for comment, 2008 gymnastics all-around silver medalist Shawn Johnson had this to say, "What news show did you say you were with again?" Channel Six with April O'Neil -- this is Barry Hansome reporting. Hello? HELLO? *slams banana on counter*

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to SharkDiddler, who's braver than I am.
