Robot riding bike - Amazing

Flossie may sound like the name of a dental hygiene bot, but it’s actually the Castrol-developed test rider you see above straddling that cycle. The robot has a self-learning mode that lets it to get a feel (throttle response, clutch drag, gear shifting patterns, etc.) for any stationary bike upon which it’s perched.

That’s right, he “rides” while stationary. We wonder how long it will be before he actually takes one of these bad boys on the road, joining up with Murata Boy. Flossie lets Castrol evaluate its lubricants as effectively as possible.
