This robot can carry you around the room

The contraption is the latest innovation from the robotics engineers at the Chiba Institute of Technology in Japan.

The robot called Core is all legs which can bend and move around. The legs are topped by a platform that can be loaded with weights of up to 100 kg, reports the Daily Mail.
It comes with shock absorbers and weighs 228 kg. The device is at the prototype stage, but developers believe Core could be used on building sites or even to move disabled people around.

Some bloggers have also speculated that the robot could have military purposes. The team at Chiba hope to have a fully finished mobility robot by 2012.
