A few weeks ahead the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, Chinese engineers have presented a six-legged skiing robot that expertly slaloms down a snowy white slope in Shenyang, China. The team of engineers said that the robot stands on a pair of skis with four of its legs and grips poles using its two other limbs.

Researchers have put it to tests in both beginner and intermediate slopes and have proven to stay upright and avoid obstacles. The robot was developed by engineers from the Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
