The HRP-3 Promet Mk-II is the result of a 5-year joint effort by Kawada Industries, Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) to develop a humanoid robot with sufficient skills to enter the workforce (unlike most college graduates). The 1.6 meter tall, 68 kilo robot is made of tougher hardware to enable it to function in tough enviroments. Watch it in action after the jump. [GT]
