Space Robot Robonaut 2 has just received his space legs, which allow him to assist astronauts with chores inside and outside the station, freeing up time for astronauts to do more research and other tasks.
Karlsruhe University developed a humanoid called ARMAR II. It has improved vision and arms, and can learn to improve its grasping abilities via touch of the object on its own.
ARMAR III is a humanoid robot developed by Karlsruhe University. It has size and proportion similar to that of a human, and can deal with household objects and general environment.
BARTHOC is a robot that learns through communicating with humans. Its functions are not preprogrammed; it picks up and executes instructions through robot-human interaction.
Denise is a pneumatically powered walking robot. It uses the concept of passive dynamic walking and is a natural looking biped robot. Denise has bending, extending knees.
KAIST developed the second robot in the HanSaRam series called HanSaRam II. This bipedal walking robot has the shape of a human body with different upper and lowers parts.
KAIST developed the third robot in the HanSaRam series called HanSaRam III. It has 22 DOFs and a camera for visual feedback, and can grasp objects with its claw-like hands.
KAIST developed the fifth robot in the HanSaRam series called HanSaRam V. With independent locomotion, sensing and processing, it can walk in patterns avoiding obstacles.
KAIST developed the sixth robot in the HanSaRam series called HanSaRam VI. It generates walking pace through 3D linear inverted pendulum mode, which makes easy to control motions.
KAIST developed the third robot in the HUBO series called HUBO KHR-3. It is a prototype humanoid which can play rock-paper-scissors because of independent motion of its fingers.
