Video: Super-Realistic HRP-4C Humanoid Walks Like Human



Most robots that are labeled “humanoids” still have a common problem: they can only walk in a slow, mechanical and chopping motion. Even HRP-4C, in my opinion the most realistic humanoid ever created, wasn’t an exception – until now.

Even though she could sing and later even learned to dance, walking was never her strong suit (the first version couldn’t move her legs at all). But its maker, Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), has been working on it: the newest HRP-4C has toes that support the legs during strides, for example.

You can see the result in the video embedded below. HRP-4C isn’t exactly walking like a human yet, but it’s the most impressive result I (as a robot otaku) have seen so far:
