International Robot Exhibition - HRP-2

Last week I went to the International Robot exhibition in Tokyo. There were so many robots too see. Of course, the most popular robots were the humanoids. For some years now, AIST and Kawada industries have been researching this robot, called HRP-2. It is the height of a small adult and appears to have similar abilities to Honda`s Asimo. The ultimate aim is for the robot to assist humans at home and in the workplace. At the exhibition, HRP-2 did some traditional Japanese drumming. I have uploaded a video of the drumming here.
