World’s First Manned Bipedal Robot

Fans of Fantasy… Here’s something great for you. ‘The World of Fantasy is becoming real.’ Fascination has always been obsessed with the idea of Robots and artificial intelligence. Especially the manned robots are classic in many sci-fi movies. The concept of sitting inside a massive World’s First Manned Bipedal Robot and controlling it with a joystick just like a suit sounds simply awesome.

The World’s First Manned Bipedal Robot was unveiled in last December by a South Korean company Hankook Mirae but it came us in highlights when the CEO of Amazon Jeff Bezos tried it and showed it off. On March 20th, Amazon was holding the top-secret Mars conference, an annual event to celebrate machine learning, space exploration, home automation and robotics. Jeff Bezos seemed to be thrilled about the manned robot and he jokingly asked, “Why do I feel so much like Sigour Weaver?” This was a reference to a Sci-Fi classic “Aliens” from 1986 by James Cameron.

Are you excited for Sci-Fi creations like this one to become real?

Though robots like this have of course been eyed for military applications, they can be used for so much more. The ability for the robot to both protect a human and allow its operator to manipulate objects with its hands means we could see these devices being used in everything from hazardous construction to bio-hazard cleanup in the future. Still though, that’s a future that appears to be a long way off. It might be a long way of development where lot of improvement is still required for such manned robots but there’s a high probability for the same.
