A team led by professor Oh Jun-ho of the Mechanical Engineering department at KAIST held its first public demonstration of a walking human type robot called HUBO in the schools Taewoolguan yesterday after three years of research. HUBO is shown bending 10 fingers with primary school children. During the show, HUBO danced and played games with spectators. HUBO measures 125cm and weighs 55kg, and can walk 30cm at a time (left and right strides: 15cm), and can turn itself at an angle of 45 degrees. It has 41 joints and motors all over its body allowing it various body movements.
