    Robotic Gymnast

    Uploaded on May 22, 2009

    The 3-link robotic gymnast (Robogymnast) is developed by Dr. Eldaw Eldukhri and colleagues at the Manufacturing Engineering Centre, Cardiff University, UK. It mimics a human gymnast swinging on a high bar using shoulder and hip joints. The high bar rotates freely on ball bearings. Currently research is underway to balance Robogymnast at the upright position. For more information visit:

    Nastia Liukin Helps Fisher-Price Introduce New, Interactive Fantastic Gymnastics Dora Doll to Adventure-Seeking Dora Fans

    Five-Time Olympic Medal Gymnast and Role Model Hits Gymnastics Mat with Dora and Friends

    PLANO, Texas -- July 25, 2012 -- Just in time for the excitement in London this summer, five-time Olympic medalist and role model, Nastia Liukin, is teaming up with Fisher-Price, Inc., a subsidiary of Mattel, Inc. (NASDAQ:MAT), to help introduce the new, interactive Fantastic Gymnastics Dora doll to adventure-seeking children everywhere. The popular gymnast was right at home where she trains at the World Olympics Gymnastics Academy in Plano, Texas as she hit the mats to support young gymnasts through routines inspired by Fantastic Gymnastics Dora. As girls tumbled alongside Dora, Liukin reminded them that one small somersault could lead somewhere big!

    Fantastic Gymnastics Dora, based off of the Nickelodeon show Dora the Explorer™, performs two gymnastics routines, features seven unique moves -- including splits, handstands and back-bends -- and enhances imaginative role-play for kids ages three and older. Children can coach their friend Dora through her practice and performance routines and learn the value of teamwork by cheering her on. Fantastic Gymnastics Dora also features more than 40 phrases in English and Spanish and a special song celebrating teamwork.

    This August, consumers can download the free, Fantastic Gymnastics Dora augmented reality app on retail shelves to watch Fantastic Gymnastics Dora come to life. They can also download the free app directly from the App Store.

    As with all Fisher-Price products, Fantastic Gymnastics Dora was developed through the brand's Joy of Learning lens to ensure skill-building benefits for children, while keeping play fun and interactive.

    "Fantastic Gymnastics Dora features multiple ways of play to encourage children's imagination and creativity skills, as well as self-expression and confidence," said Susie Lecker, Senior Vice President of Fisher-Price Friends. "Nastia is the perfect partner to help launch Fantastic Gymnastics Dora because she strives to reach her full-potential each day and is a true champion. She continues to be a wonderful role model for young girls everywhere, just like Dora!"

    "We know that young girls will be following gymnastics closely this summer, sparking excitement; who better to share that adventure with them, than Dora?" said Manuel Torres, Senior Vice President, Global Toys, Nickelodeon Consumer Products. "Fantastic Gymnastics Dora from Fisher-Price captures the adventurous spirit of Dora and is sure to motivate active children with her moves and words of encouragement."

    Fantastic Gymnastics Dora will be available for $49.99 in August at retailers nationwide including Toys 'R' Us, Target, Walmart and Kmart, as well as on

    Stickman: towards a human scale acrobatic robot

    Published on May 22, 2018

    Human performers have developed impressive acrobatic techniques over thousands of years of practicing the gymnastic arts. At the same time, robots have started to become more mobile and autonomous, and can begin to imitate these stunts in dramatic and informative ways. We present a simple two degree of freedom robot that uses a gravity-driven pendulum launch and produces a variety of somersaulting stunts. The robot uses an IMU and a laser range-finder to estimate its state mid-flight and actuates to change its motion both on and and off the pendulum. We discuss the dynamics of this behavior in a framework of acrobatic capability and present experimental results.
