OhmyNews International has posted an interview with KAIST mechanical engineering professor Oh Jun Ho, who is the team leader on the HUBO humanoid robot project. HUBO KHR-2, who we mentioned in an earlier story, is a 120cm tall humanoid robot weighing 55kg with 41 joints. HUBO can walk at 1.25 km/h, has individually articulated fingers, and can recognize visual and auditory cues. Oh Jun Ho talks about the design process and why we need humanoid robots. The article also includes photos of HUBO's construction and testing. For more on the HUBO robot, see the KAIST Machine Control Lab website.
