The Chiba Institute of Technology (CIT) has been busy creating a bipedal robot named Core. The robotic creation stands on two legs and measures 1,915mm tall and weighs 230kg. Check out the video after the break to see it in action.
The team at Chiba Institute of Technology are working to create a finished mobility robot by 2012. Core can currently carry weights of in excess of 100kg while bending knees and walking. Core’s leg units are fitted with 12 individual joints (six in each leg) to aid movement and positioning.
