Technology, the bridge that connects our geeky dreams and reality. Toyota, the makers of the iconic AE86 Sprinter Trueno more popularly known as the “Hachi-Roku”, just unveiled its third generation robot called the T-HR3. So what’s so special about this one? I mean we already have ASIMO from Honda and Sophia (the human-like robot). Well, the T-HR3 is an automaton that synchronizes with the operator’s movements. Wait a second, what does that remind me of hmmm…
That’s right, guys! It’s like a mini Daimos or a mini Shining Gundam or a boxing robot from Real Steel or a mini Pacific Rim Jaeger! Check out the video below!
Using the “Master Maneuvering System” (MMS for short), the operator’s controls include a head-mounted display, data glove, and torque servos. While still in its testing phase, the robot is intended for operating in disaster-stricken areas, construction sites, and hopefully in outer space.
T-HR3 will be appearing at the International Robot Exhibition in Tokyo from November 29th to December 2nd 2017 at the Tokyo Big Sight!
