Romeo From Aldebaran Robotics
Aldebaran Robotics along with other partners have been working on a humanoid robot called Romeo.
The project website states:
The project’s objective is to develop a humanoid robot that can act as a comprehensive assistant for persons suffering from loss of autonomy. On the ground of Romeo’s project learnings, Aldebaran intends to develop a product which could be on the market by 2015.
Romeo weighs 40.53 kg and stands 1.43 m tall. For more really detailed specs, check out Romeo’s documentation page. As far as humanoid robots go, Romeo is pretty realistic and is not at all creepy or in the uncanny valley like some other humanoid robots. Nice job so far. We hope Romeo actually makes it to market in 2015.
