Known only by the handle Hinamitetu, this little robot has been hard at work perfecting its routine. The results are pretty impressive, especially considering that the robot's home gym looks like it's set up in the middle of its creator's bedroom.

We're not saying that Hinamitetu is perfect: it's had its share of failures, to be sure. But a new video, recently uploaded by Hinamitetu's creator and operator, shows the little bot nailing a landing after executing a quadruple backflip.

That's pretty crazy, even for a human. If you'd like to learn more about Hinamitetu's progress, there's a comprehensive blog of its progress here. And make sure you check out its greatest hits in the video below.
