upgrades for manoi bipeds

Our friend Lem from Robots-Dreams has posted photos of a new skin/body shell for the Manoi AT01 biped that gives it a totally different look- a lot more menacing than the original skin IMHO.

Also p
osted from Robots-Dreams Lem writes about the new robotic hand for the Manoi biped developed by Kyosho. This fascinating little video shows the hand in action playing a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors.




Pretty cool indeed! Two servos control guide wires that open and close the jointed fingers and thumb. No info on the prices yet, nor what the final product will look like.


And ending on a sillier note, here's a couple of Cat-Manoi's aerobic-team-dancing to a catchy J-Pop tune. Again thanks to my hero, Lem at Robots-Dreams.
