Video: Meet Weird Bipedal Robot ZIN

We’ve shown you quite a few weird robots over the past years, and now we have one more. Meet ZIN [JP], a model developed at Gifu National College of Technology in Japan. I don’t know why exactly they built the robot this way, but it’s funny to look at, especially on video (see below).

The 11 students behind ZIN say their goal was to create a robot that can walk like a human being and that’s able to mimic the movements of human operators. For that, ZIN uses just one motor that actuates both legs.

Watch ZIN in action in the video embedded below:
