Researchers have developed a computer program that can learn to walk - and not only is it impressive it's utterly hilarious too.
The 'Flexible Muscle-Based Locomotion for Bipedal Creatures' is a collaboration between scientists at Utrecht University and the University of British Columbia.
It is a "muscle-based control method for simulated bipeds in which both the muscle routing and control parameters are optimized".
Basically a computer program that simulates a variety of different body shapes and species types that learn to walk through trial and error.
The video is well worth a watch...Suggest a correction
