Robot Teaches Itself to Walk, Even with Damage

Take a look at http://www.technovelgy.com/ct/Science-Fiction-News.asp?NewsNum=823. This starfish-shaped robot teaches itself to walk through self-introspection. A video is also available on http://ccsl.mae.cornell.edu/research/selfmodels/morepictures.htm along with pictures.

Even when one of the legs of this robot is damaged (removed), it teaches itself to walk again.

This is an incredibly fascinating accomplishment…but still very creepy.
