    With all these robots seeming to have either a blue screen attack or just falling over etc. it looks like the human race is safe for seeable future!

    Funny fail / falls aside - they didn't all fall and the main thing is 3 of them fully completed the course

    Here's the full winning run:


    Also good to see the Boston Dynamics Atlas robots beaten.
