A Japanese roboticist that goes by the handle Dr. Guero, famous for programming his hobby robot to ride a miniature bicycle and walk on stilts, has managed to get his robot to balance on a tightrope.

The video shows Dr. Guero’s robot as it slides its way along the wire, making minute adjustments to its balance by waving its arms, based on signals from its inclination sensor.
