MURATA GIRL made her debut last year as a paternal cousin to the bicycle-riding robot MURATA BOY. Her amazing unicycling skills were demonstrated at CEATEC JAPAN 2009 where she even crossed a narrow bridge of 20mm(that's less than an inch) on her unicycle. Here's our video footage of her adorable performance.
Videos and pics after the cut!

Next challenge, she has to cross this narrow bridge. Can she do it?
Admittedly the bridge is not very long, but her balance is still amazing.
