Dynamic Robots Take Over the Olympics
While we've been having tons of fun kicking back on the couch and checking out the Winter Olympics in Pyeong Chang some very smart engineers are creating some of their own.
Just a few miles away from the actual games, eight humanoid robots competed in the Ski Robot Challenge!
To compete, the bots had to meet certain requirements like being more than 19 inches in height, stand on two 'legs' with joints resembling elbows and knees, and use skis and poles.
