  In many ways, the human race has advanced radically in a very short period of time. People born with missing limbs can now live full and “normal” lives, as can those who have suffered injuries and amputations. This is a far cry from the days when an amputated leg meant either life with a […]

So, not long after their release, “THOR” was revealed; Robotis’ child-sized humanoid entry into the DARPA humanoid challenge. The latest iteration of this […]

With the hope of rendering the robot more autonomous, Honda has partnered with Japan’s National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation to create an interactive presentation with their little humanoid robot. Since Asimo was completely on its own this […]

Without further ado, meet Atlas, a ridiculously advanced and […]

Dongbu Robotics released the Hovis Genie, a new humanoid robot. This platform is built on the Hovis Eco biped platform but the legs have been replaced by a holonomic omniwheel drive system and an additional smart device holder in the chest. The resulting robot is very stable, versatile and has lots of possibilities for interactivity and advanced development. See the […]

PETMAN, the biped humanoid from Boston Dynamics, recently got to do its job: to test military clothing and equipment. As seen in the video below, the robot was given some clothes and equipment to test… and it did just that. It is very interesting to see the robot walk and move effortlessly. What do you think of this kind of […]

The SyFy Channel recently launched the new “Robot Combat League“; a new series featuring large, ~2m tall humanoid robots fighting against each other one on one (almost identical to the robots in the movie “Real Steel”). Each robot is controlled by two operators (one for the upper torso and and the other for the legs). Take a look at […]
