ROBOT CARRIES THE KOREAN WINTER OLYMPIC TORCH THROUGH A WALL

It seems that the task of transporti­ng the flame baton from A to B wasn’t challengin­g enough for Hubo, the Korean Advanced Institute of Robotics creation, as its creator Professor Oh Jun-Ho added a timber hurdle to its path. Hubo cut a torch sized hole in the wall and passed the Olympic symbol through it to complete its participat­ion in the ceremony.
