I think I've seen this bot before, was it previously designated the 'Qrio' or something like that?
It's been around for a short while now, I remember reading articles at various times when they unveiled it doing something new. So far it's been
shown doing tai-chi, taking penalty kicks in football (soccer to you yanks) and even running although it was only following the definition of running
that is both feet off the floor simultaeneously at some point during the stride, I don't think it achieved much of a top speed but still it was a
nice progression for free roaming humanoid robotics.
I love these little critters, I'm eagerly waiting their launch, not that I'll be able to fork out the however many thousand pound price tag. It's
nice to see that robots are approaching their 'coming of age' if you will.
Nice article find mate.
