Hubo, the Walking Robot Chair

 |  |  |  |  |  |  March 14, 2007


I stumbled across this video over on Technovelgy this morning and thought it worth a mention. The HUBO FX-1 is a humanoid robot that happens to have a seat on top of it instead of a head.

Just sit in the chair, move the joysticks, and the gyroscopic stabilization system allows the ‘bot to walk like you and I. The whole thing looks really strange in action:

The 6-foot tall, 330-pound robot can hold a driver weighing up to about 220 pounds and can walk forwards, backwards, left, right and even turn around 360 degrees.
