HUBO

domenica, novembre 15th, 2009

As if setting off the inaugural fireworks for the 90th Korean National Games wasn’t enough, in this video, the latest model of KAIST’s humanoid robot HUBO is shown walking, performing Taichi, fiddling his fingers, and (gulp)
brandishing a plastic sword.  Afterward, he grasps a bottle of cool H20
to cool off before taking to the tread mill for a brisk jog at 3kmph. 
Not as fast as ASIMO or PETMAN’s
walking speed, but the fastest I’ve seen KAIST’s robots run.  And boy
is he shiny, just look at those hands.  I know plenty of prominent
scientists, such as Dean Kamen, have said they don’t believe that
science fiction-style robots will ever walk among us, but I don’t know
if he’s seen HUBO.  I certainly wouldn’t wager my scientific reputation
on what future robots will or won’t be able to do.
