Rock N Roll Robot...

Researchers at University of Tokyo have developed R Daneel, a humanoid 60-kilogram robot that kicks up its legs and rolls back onto its shoulders to gain the momentum it needs to rock up onto its feet and into a crouching position. Unlike most humanoid bots, it is designed to embrace a lack of constant control and instead follow the trajectory determined by the weight and shape of its body during the rocking motion, until it lands square back on its feet.
