Latest Invention: Robot that Could Replace Humans in the Workplace


Japanese researchers have recently presented a robot that in the near future could replace humans in the workplace.

The machine was created by specialists from Kawada Industries and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). The team hopes that with their latest invention they made a step towards developing a robot that could solve the problem of labor shortage in the land of the rising sun.

Noriyuki Kanehira, robotic systems manager at Kawada, said that the team developed a working machine "in the image of a lean but well-muscled track-and-field athlete." The statement was made at a news conference where Japanese researchers presented their blue-and-white "HRP-4."

The robot is 151 centimeters (59 inches) tall. During the demonstration it stood on one foot, twisted its waist, struck poses, walked according to the given voice commands and tracked different objects by moving its head.

It is worth mentioning that the machine moves more freely than previous models. According to its developers, the HRP-4 is able to run a series of separately-developed software applications, reports Physorg.

Researchers hope to start selling their latest invention in January 2011. The machine will be mainly sold to universities and research institutes in Japan and abroad. The low cost model will be available for 26 million yen (306,000 dollars). The developers are looking forward to selling 3 to 5 units a year.
