The DARPA Robotics Challenge, set up after the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, aims to ‘accelerate the development of robots that can respond to man-made or natural disasters’.

This year,  a transforming Korean bot won the $2 million prize.

Hurray!

Now here’s a montage of the robots that fell over.

    The last robot was like an old man getting off a bus. Once he got the jiggly legs it was game over.

    Were they asked to design robots that act like drunk humans?

    In fairness, they’d make good premiership footballers – they drop like they’ve just been shot.
