Kotarou robot responds to touch
â€œKotarouâ€ â€” developed at the University of Tokyo â€” stands 133cm tall and weighs approx. 44-pounds. What sets this robot apart from others is that it actually responds to human touch â€” grasping of the hand, etc. It features multiple processors and an external power source.
I dunno man. Judging by the video the scientists didn't put enough effort into this thing. It barely moves and if I hadn't been told it was a functioning robot I would've just assumed it was a really fancy looking doll. One more video after the jump.
