There's no doubt that robotics continues to power the world, especially as the Daft Punk robots were big winners at the 2014 Grammys.
In the latest episode of Geeked Out, you can check out a four-legged robot and a few other clips lighting up the Internet, including ones of a robot that runs faster than a speeding bullet and a devil baby that roams New York emitting a blood-curdling scream that scares everyone around out of their wits.

Remember the game "rock, paper, scissors"? Well, if you plan on playing against a robot, expect paper to cover rock every time.
Developers at the University of Tokyo invented a high-speed robot hand that can recognize the motion of a human hand. Whether the person's hand signals scissors, rock or paper, the robot hand uses its ultrafast vision to always cut, break or cover its opponent—all in a matter of a millisecond!
Looks like the "Janken robot" will be the undefeated champion in this game from now on.

It seems Jean Claude Van Damme hasn't lost his touch.
The action star known as "The Muscles from Brussels" is back in the spotlight in a big way, thanks to a new Volvo commercial featuring his signature split seen in movies such as "Bloodsport" and "Timecop".

A new composite video released from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center illustrates the power and brilliance of the sun—thanks to a series of epic images of a recent explosion of solar material known as plasma.
The result: A 200,000 mile long filament that created an effect that's being dubbed "the canyon of fire."
Call it the ultimate fashion show for geek nation.
"Cosplay" is the art of dressing up as your comic book or video game superhero, often using homemade costumes that sometimes takes months of careful planning and effort.

If you're looking to jack up your geek cred, here are some tips.
It's not just the title of an iconic Daft Punk song. It's also the mantra of the age we live in - where scientists, artists and even do-it-yourself engineers continue to aim high and push the boundaries of their respective fields.
In the latest episode of Geeked Out, we feature some eye-catching examples including a head-spinning homemade multi-copter, Space X's self-landing rocket, a human slingshot and a LED powered bike straight out of "Tron."
Robots have always captured the imagination. Lately, there have been many examples—including a cool clip that shows how 3-D printing technology led to the development of a spine-tingling spider robot made from 26 motors.
The Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency also recently unveiled its own scary robot, which looks like it's straight out of a science fiction movie. Known as Atlas, the robot is a 330-pound beast that may eventually be used for disaster relief, humanitarian aid and other missions.
Robots aren't the only things that have been clicking on the Web. An astronaut on the International Space Station recently demonstrated the art (and challenge) of hair-washing in zero gravity, while an intrepid scientist showed the world how waterbending isn't just something you see only in a Hollywood motion picture.
So who says science isn't fun (or cool)?
