Slowest Running Robot Ever

Run Bot
By Bruce Eaton

Robotis from South Korea has built the “Running Robot” or in actuality, the Slo-Mo-Bot. The Humanoid Robot RX blazes the trails at 500 meters per hour(0.31 mph) which is not fast at all compared to Honda’s ASIMO, which moves at an impressive 3km per hour (1.86 mph). Built on a modular system and an outsourced software platform, the real potential is in the software.

Although not winning any races, with voice and facial recognition technology, an estimated $1000 to $2000 price tag, and upgradable software, could this be the bot who (slowly, oh so slowly) walks all over the Robosapien?
