Do you want to know what the much intelligent, immortal, agile human being would look like? At ICRA, 2012, Dr. Jun Ho Oh revealed the latest from KAIST, HUBO 2, a humanoid with advanced motor movements that allow it to bend down and even do push-ups. A new, improved model with the ability to move hinge joints and do chores like open car doors, operate a gear shift, and also hold up to 7 kg, the mechanics include “individually actuated” fingers that adapt to the shape of whatever HUBO 2 is holding, like the new ASIMO. A humanoid behind which has gone 10 years of extensive research, these successors of highly elastic humans can also walk 2km on a charge, can run at a speed of 4kmph, and has multiple motors per joint for added power.
