The world's largest biped walking machine "Hajime Robot" moves shooting with photos & movies

"GundamA project aiming to have a grand aim such as to create an aircraft like a mobile suits appearing in a car is done by Dr. Sakamoto (originally Sakamoto) Dr. and members of volunteer who have technology such as metal processing, motor production, design etc. . And finally succeeded in developing a biped walking machine with a total height of 4 meters, which should be called the prototype of the mobile suit, and since it is that the exhibition event will be held, we decided to take a picture of the real thing going to the site.

The appearance of the factory where the world's largest biped walking robot is stored is as follows.

The state of the presentation is like this.

He is the central figure of the project,First InstituteDr. Sakamoto who is designing and developing various robots with.

Some members like Gundam, and the venue has a deformed style made of metalRX-78It is decorated.

Looking from the front like this.



Sharp antenna.

Many prototypes have been developed before making a robot of 4 m, and small machines that operate wirelessly as below are on display.

One foot stand is also possible.

A robot that recognizes the surroundings with a camera on the head, can autonomously act and kick the ball.

The operation of the upper body uses a controller like a miniaturized robot,Master / SlaveMove it by the method.

I installed a controller.

You can see the state that the robot is being operated surprisingly quickly by actually moving the controller in the following movie.

And the following is the world's largest biped walking machine "Hajimeto Robot 43" which will demonstrate this time. Currently only the lower half of the body is completed and it is planned that the whole body including the upper body will be completed by the spring of 2013.

The height to the floor under the seat and about 2 meters, the current weight is about 250 kg.

There is a seat higher than the head of an adult male.

Demonstration of walking started in the public circle.

You can see how to get on the robot with the following movie.

Boarding completed.

Looking down at the robot's ride is like this.

Robot that slowly shifts the center of gravity to the left and puts the right foot forward.

When putting the left foot forward, the center of gravity will tilt to the right. It is said that the center of gravity moves 76 cm to the left and right for every two steps, and it seems that the passenger seems to be in a state of seasickness when walking long.

Please check with the following movie how the robot actually carries a person, walking while rocking the big body.

When getting off the robot is like this.

The following people are involved in development.

In the same project, we are looking for collaborators who will provide necessary know-how and technology for robot development. Also, if you become "supporter" who can participate from 3000 yen per mouth, it seems that you get original goods such as stickers and straps.
