ATOM-7xp

Our enthusiasm for this particular walking robot
is unfortunately a bit dampened by a lack of video, or any evidence of
actual walking, but both of those are promised to be forthcoming, and
the bot still has enough going for it to distinguish itself in the
meantime. Proudly made in the USA by Futurebots, this so-called ATOM-7x
robot is actually powered by not one but two Atom processors (a
dual-core Atom 330 and an Atom 230), which themselves power two
separate systems running Windows XP and Windows 7. Those, paired with
slew of sensors, gyros and accelerometers, promises to give the bot a
whole range of humanoid capabilities, including an advanced stereo
vision system that its creators say will let it "take on real world
problems." Complete details are otherwise still a bit light, but the
bot can apparently operate autonomously in addition to being used as a
telepresence robot, and it unsurprisingly wasn’t cheap or easy to build
("2 mortgages and lots of sweat"). We’ll be sure to keep an eye out for
any sightings of this one in action.
