CalTech Engineers Have Built a Skateboarding Robot

If you’ve ever tried to meet up with the crew but nobody was down to skate, we’ve got good news for you: CalTech engineers are working on a skate homie who will, theoretically, always be down to skate whenever you are. Just flip the switch (was that switch?) and LEONARDO the robot will be ready for the sesh—any time, day or night. When this bipedal metalhead skates, he’s 100% bolts every time.

A paper about the LEO robot was published online yesterday and is featured on this month’s cover of Science Robotics. Watch the video above to see what this little guy is capable of… Paris 2024 is gonna be very interesting.
