Learning to ride a bike all by yourself is a big step in growing up. For robots, however, it means being getting redesigned as an all new model.

Dr Guero took the Kondo KHR-3HV and upgraded it to ride a bike. Clearly it’s only a matter of time before Lil’ BikeTron 5000 achieves sentience and enslaves humanity. 

Watch this little guy whiz around on his motorized mini-bike all by himself. Amazingly, he is able to steer and break while riding around in circles on the blacktop.

It’s probably the most adorable little robot ever. We wish we could take him home with us. (And hope he doesn’t grow up to subjugate humanity.) Watch the little guy in action below.
