Martial arts crazy China has found a way to involve their favourite forms of physical activity into almost all aspects of life, it permeates their entire culture. While we in the west were letting slinkies simply stroll down the stairs they were applying the laws of Kung Fu to the magnificently colourful coils of plastic. Robotics is no exception either, the very moment they imbued these metal mechanical machines with intelligence they set out to teach them the art of moving without moving, it’s only natural it seems.
Today for your consideration are two videos that demonstrate just how far the Chinese will go to improve the world through martial arts, Slinky Kung Fu and Tai Chi Roboto. Which is the superior style of martial art and which would win in a street fight? We’ll let you decide which is the superior discipline. Here at Highpants we have a sneaking suspicion the slinky would win through sheer confusion and entanglement. So, sit back relax and let the martial arts displays begin.
