EVOLTA Trains for World Challenge IV and the Hawaii Triathlon

by Conner Flynn

By now most of us into robots have heard of Panasonic’s EVOLTA robot. They have a new challenge for the little robot every year. This year Panasonic has EVOLTA World Challenge IV.


So what will it be this time? Bicycling across the country? Climbing a tall mountain? It will be a 230km triathlon that includes swimming, biking and running. I can hear the Rocky music now as EVOLTA trains. It is the job of robot creator Tomotaka Takahashi to design three suits for the robot for each of the challenges.

Sure, this is all to get you to buy Panasonic’s EVOLTA rechargeable batteries, but who cares? I’m still rooting for the little guy. He’s got heart. In 2008, EVOLTA, powered by two AA EVOLTA batteries, lasted 6 hours and 46 minutes when it conquered 530.4m of the Grand Canyon. I couldn’t do that with or without batteries.

For this latest challenge three robots will be used, one for each job. We here at technabob are cheering for the little guys.
