    In 1993, Jouhou System Kougaku (JSK) Laboratory of the University of Tokyo released a new type of humanoid robot with two arms and two legs similar to an ape. The project's aim was to study behavior based on models and vision.

    This humanoid robot is remote-brained: it leaves its brain in a mother environment and talks with it through radio links. The brain software in the mother environment is developed over time.

    The Apelike is a multi-limbed mobile robot. It can follow a human, climb stairs, and make swimming motions.
