FemBot That Balances On A Unicycle
Pardon me, but I think this robot bears a tiny resemblance to Eve from Wall-E. Though it isn’t levitating, it looks absolutely cool as it balances on a unicycle which is attached to its legs permanently!
Made by Murata Electronics, Murata Girl is actually the cousin of Murata Boy, a bicycle riding robot. What she’s basically programmed to do is to follow her cousin around like some anime or drama storyline.

If you don’t know who’s Murata Boy here’s a video of him in action:
They are both really amazing robots. Who would have thought robots would be able to balance themselves. Finally, the end of the human civilisation. Ha!
