Yeah I have seen that. Still amazing though.
It looks a bit creepy, like two human legs with no torso.

When he kicks it, I thought "That must be one hell of an algorithm!". Awesome.

Please put down your weapon. You have 20 seconds to comply.
You now have 15 seconds to comply.
You have 5 seconds to comply.
