New Leg Will Help Robots Fall Down Less

The absolute best thing about robots is how they constantly fall down when they try to walk like people. Seriously. After you read this, please make your way over to YouTube dot com and check out “robots falling” and we guarantee your afternoon will be a barrel of laughs you didn’t know you had been keeping in storage.

Unfortunately for our wheezing procrastinating fun, researchers are trying to keep that from happening. Apparently it “hampers productivity” to have robots “walking like they’re drunk.” This leg will allow future bots to jump 32 inches in the air without eating dirt immediately thereafter.

Worst invention ever.
