I suspect these are fakes (animation or motion capture rather than autonomous balancing) but if these are for real, they're pretty impressive. Watch the MPEGs at the bottom of the pages: TeamOsaka, Robovie-M.
Scene missing! A video that used to be embedded in this post has disappeared. If you know of a copy of this video that is still accessible, please mail me so that I can update the link.
