If scientists aren't spending their time creating strange, creepy robots then are they even real scientists? The Velox robot was developed by Pliant Energy Systems and it has just recently learned how to ice skate. No word yet if this is because competing in ice skating is the robot's true life-long goal or just one more step on the mechanical path to dominating its human masters.

Based on the guy's calm demeanor, you'd never guess he was soaring hundreds of feet up in the air — but then again, the level of chill required to kick back on a flying couch without a harness in the first place is probably pretty high.
