The Skill of Walking
There's always been something interesting and magical about the ability to walk. I've always been fascinated by the amount of coordination it takes for bipedal locomotion; the brain has to be able to juggle all of the sights, muscles, balance, and then somehow coordinate all of the muscles necessary to put one foot in front of the other. It's something many of us take for granted.
And for those people who want to make it happen in a mechanical way? More power to them with trying to process all of that information. It must be daunting.
