Fujitsu robot shows off goalkeeping skills

Robots, Show news

At CEATEC in Japan it seems the machines have finally taken over, as several manufacturers brushed off their intelligent robots.

Fujitsu showed off two models – its miniature HOAP-2 humanoid robot, which impressed visitors with its footballing and dancing skills, and a cute mobile agent robot, MARON-1. Slightly more sinister was ALSOK’s GuardRobo. In development since 1982, the GuardRobo is already being used in Japan for patrolling and surveillance.

A red lamp on the robot’s shoulder flashes if it detects an intruder, while an alarm and camera images are relayed to a central control centre. We think that the GuardRobo looks a like a mechanical matron! Oo-er, missus.
