HRP-4C Miim dance demonstration

This video is from three years ago, but it sems like lately they’ve made them move more like humans.

Even at this point they move rather realistically.
In the next four or five years they’ll probably be able to create robots whose movements won’t be inferior to humans.

Though it’s still rather awkward and plain, it’s impossible for foreign companies to develop it at this point.
This is an extremely delicate movement and only robots made in Japan can do this.

Cyberdyne “Disaster Prevention Robot Suit HAL” 1/2

This is the powersuit HAL developed by Cyberdyne Inc.
Though this video is about a year old, the specs of the latest model can essentially do anything a human can do.
It can also hold something 5 times its own weight.

The greatest trait of this suit is that it can detect even the weakest electric signal coming from a living human. It links up to the signal and moves towards it, making this an extremely ground-breaking technique.

This is the so-called “arm suit,” “mobile suit” genre of robot. It was developed by hobbyists, so it’s extremely unique.

For some reason, it looks like the DOME from Gundam. It costs 100 million yen.
Already a great number of inquiries have come from overseas.

It’s cool, right? Do you know the old movie “Akira,” directed by Otomo Katsuhiro? It looks just like the bike that was in the movie.

It also looks like a bike that was in the Hollywood movie “TRON.”

Tokyo Institute of Technology Hirose Laboratory Amphibious Snake-type Robot ACM-R5

This is a robot that moves realistically just like a moray eel or sea serpent.

Its actions are extremely smooth, it’s magnificent.

Fanuc’s “This Year’s Prize Robot” Prize-Winning Robot

It can perform these sort of quick, complex movements as a high-level industry robot.
Japan is still unchallenged in this field, and without this sort of technique the world’s semiconductor manufacturing places would not exist.
