Japanese Humanoids do Gymnastics

Roland Piquepaille writes about a new humanoid robot that was shown off recently doing a gymnastics performance. "According to Robots Dreams, two Japanese companies, JR Robotics and Vstone, have unveiled last week several programmable consumer robots able to perform acrobatic moves and gymnastics. One of these robots, simply named RB2000, is 11.5 inches tall (around 30 centimeters), weighs about 2.5 pounds (or slightly more than a kilogram), but can really do lots of tricks. It should be available by December -- in Japan -- for a price to be announced." For more info see Roland's blog or Robots Dreams.

First thing I would probably want to do is add rubber soled shoes to it! They are like walking on ice they're sliding so much. Other than that, the robot is impressive! I like it.
