Hitachi Emiew2 Robot: Ready to Assimilate You With Cuteness

by Range

Hitachi just unveiled an updated version of its humanoid robot, the EMIEW2. This interesting acronym stands for Excellent Mobility and Interactive Existence as Workmate2, which probably sounds way better in Japanese.

This ‘bot is actually kind of amazing since it can scoot around on uneven ground, including bumps up to ½ an inch. It can also distinguish different human voices and speak with people. Its top speed is around 4mph and it’s about 3 feet tall. The little guy weighs 30 lbs, so you should be able to take him in a fight.

It looks so cute right now, but we all know that in the coming robot apocalypse, these things will take over and become our masters.

    How cute. I can’t imagine its little red helmet serves any purpose other than to make it look adorable.

    yeah. cute. I see a hundred ways this little guy could have been a big help to my mom who passed away from cancer November 20th.But these robots were not meant for public. That’s why I haven’t seen any price listed for it anywhere. if you do find it, it won’t be in the range we can afford. This is a corporate toy to impress big money clients. They build these things and tell you there making the world a better place. but, Hording tech to sell to the highest bidder Is the same old song and dance. So don’t look for one under your Christmas tree any time soon. this little guy is off limits to the non corporate community .
