PROTIP: Keep the volume all the way down unless you like the sound of your brain melting.

This is a video of DARPA's Atlas robot recreating the crane kick stance from the end of Karate Kid. I don't know about you, but I would sweep the shit out of that leg. So yeah, Atlas can balance on one foot now, bringing him that much closer to the job at the circus he's never dreamed of.

Keep going for the video, as well as the end of Karate Kid.

Thanks to Venancio and Rosey, who agree it's only a matter of time until the robots develop their own form of karate and break all our bones.
