break-dancing-robot Building a self-balancing robot too easy for you? Why not take an extra step and trick one out so that it can breakdance!
It’s pretty awesome, however if I was a human breakdancer competing against it, I would be tempted to argue that using a built-in motor to do head spins is kind of like cheating. Of course, it’s probably not a good idea to argue with a breakdancing robot, so maybe I would just let it win. Two well known robot guru’s here, Dr. GIY and Okamoto-san, put their heads (and hearts) together to create a highly tuned, and no doubt very expensive, MANOI hybrid that can really wail on the dance floor.
They named their new robot “MANOI GO!”, which we’re guessing is a play on words. Of course, the meaning of “Go!” in English is obvious. In Japanese, “Go!” also represents the number 5, and could indicate that the robot costs at least 4X the standard model, which wouldn’t be surprising if they upgraded all the critical servos with the top of the line, high torque, Kondo KRS series.
There are also rumors going around about a major debut for this awesome bot. The robot dances much better than me…
