Watch this bipdeal bot walk a slackline and ride a skateboard

"LEONARDO" is mastering the ancient art of Skate or Die.

Mastering even one form of bipedal locomotion is a tall order for most robots, but LEONARDO, a jumping, flying, tiny robot developed by Caltech researchers, is ahead of the curve.

LEONARDO, which stands for LEgs ONboARD drOne, is a mix between bipedal bot and drone, and uses a combination of multi-joint legs and propellers to strut, fly, balance and tackle all sorts of tricky terrain.
