Honda redesigns Asimo

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on March 23rd, 2010

It’s been awhile since Honda redesigned Asimo. 13 years to be exact. The P4 looks a bit more streamlined than the P3, but as you can see it’s still the same basic bulky bot we know and love.

The P4 robot is about the same height as the P3, standing at 160cm tall, but the weight has been reduced from 130kg to 80kg. There are also some blue covers on the upper torso and feet and he has 34 degrees of freedom, 4 more than the P3. A flexible waist improves walking and presumably running and dancing as well.

Botropolis: This week in robots

Posted in Robots by Conner Flynn on January 15th, 2010

Happy Friday everyone. It’s time to take a look at what’s happening in the wonderful world of robots. We covered quite a bit this week over at Botropolis. And as far as we know, no robot has killed a human this week or through inaction allowed him to be killed, so that’s always something. Also we haven’t seen any reports of humans being abducted by robots and taken to secret lairs. But they are still taking our jobs at the same rate. So it’s been a good week. Here’s some of what we covered this week.

TrueCompanion: The World’s First Sex Robot Doll.

ENON: The Robot Salesman.

Predictions: Spot Robots On Time Traveler Transit Map.

Botropolis: This week in robotsRobots will likely inherit the Earth. Why do you think we have the space program? We like to pretend that it’s all about exploration, but really it’s because we know that it’s either leave willingly or be evicted. So onward to Mars, where we will create more metal killers and have to run all over again. Silly humans. Here’s some of what we covered this week over at Botropolis.

WWII: With Terminator.

Cyborgs: Cornell Enslaves Tobacco Hornworms.

DIY: Pocket Drunken Robots.
