PRIMER-V2 Robot Rides a Bicycle in Japan

Did you think that robots were only a silly fad and that the Japanese would grow out of it? Well think again, as they’ve engineered mechanical humanoids that can take care of the elderly, do construction work, sing, dance and probably screw in a lightbulb.
However, the Japanese know that the toymaking industry still needs relatively simple inventions that do things we thought were impossible. We’re thinking along the lines of the miniature flying remote control dragonflies and personal entertainment robots.

But what do you think of a robot that can paddle around a parking lot in Japan on a really small bicycle. It obviously doesn’t have a real world application, because what good would it be if the robots had our fun for us.

The whole contraption you see is controlled via remote. It’s amazing to think that the computers inside this thing can deal with the balance that takes humans a long time to master. The robot as a lot of other functions, but to find out more about PRIMER-V2, visit Robo Savvy.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
