OK, so let's say that the robots have taken over and are hunting down humans. You run into a circus tent, climb up the stairs and take refuge on the tightrope.
Surely, no robot can get you there, right? Wrong, silly human! This robot can walk on the tightrope before he captures you for his human zoo.
If anyone else can think of a good reason the world needs a tightrope-walking robot (other than my idea of hunting down humans for zoos), feel free to address this in the comments area.
