Robots-Dreams reports from the All Japan PlaModel/RadiCon Show in Chiba with some great footage of the new RB-2000 series from JR Robotics. It says:



The demonstrations that they specifically put together to show off the new robots, include doing gymnastics on a bar -- pull-ups and giant spins. Unfortunately, since the robot doesn't have any hands, the bar was passed through openings in the robots arms -- so it's impossible to fall off. It does, however, demonstrate the considerable torque available from the JR servos used in the arms.



The gymnastics sequence starts about 40 seconds into the YouTube video.
