From throwing a paper aeroplane to doing a Karate Kid-style high kick, the list of tasks Google's Atlas robot can do is ever-growing.
Now the latest movement mastered by the machine involves delicately balancing itself on a 0.7 inch (2 cm) wide strip of plywood.

The new video shows Atlas balancing for around 20 seconds, before wobbling and falling off the small beam.
The Atlas robot, created by Google-owned firm Boston Dynamics, is a formidable figure at 6ft 2in (1.8 metres) tall and weighing in at 330lbs (150 kg).
The robot boasts 28 hydraulically-operated joints and stereo vision, making it one of the most advanced robots ever created.
On its website, Boston Dynamics said: 'Atlas can walk bipedally leaving the upper limbs free to lift, carry, and manipulate the environment.
