Meet Stickman, a human-scale robot that can do acrobatic moves, including backflips

Just as certain human inventions take after nature (like body armor), it seems as if robots can take after humans. During a full backflipStickman swings from a wire six meters above the ground, tucks into a ball at peak height, and perfectly executes the move before landing flat on its back onto a mat.

The robot uses inertial motion sensing, laser rangefinders, and computer vision to pull off these stunts.
