Wanna see a robot Gymnast?

Some dude in Japan has created a robot that does gymnastics.  It’s quite a nimble little guy.  It seems he’s trying to make a life-sized version as well.

He’s using a 2-axis acceleration sensor in the head.  The sensors main job is to measure gravity, depending on the angle of rotation.  The angles were divided into four regions with the movement being triggered for each region, creating the proper rotational movements to perform gymnastics.

Below is one of my favorite videos of the robot:
