Finally. A robot that can ride a bicycle. I was waiting for this, "Japanese company Murata Manufacturing created a bicycling robot to show off some of their various sensors. The robot tentatively named Murata Boy (although some articles are calling it Murata Seisaku-kun) is equipped with four types of sensors: two gyro sensors used to detect angular velocity and inclination; an ultrasonic sensor to detect obstacles; and a shock sensor to detect rough surfaces." - Robots.net.
