Raise one hand. FX - 2 can carry baggage up to 70 kg including pilot.

I was able to walk, and I was able to go backward as well as advance.

You can also move not only the arms but also small movements such as opening and holding the palm of the hand, changing the orientation of the palm.

Because the pilot is exposed to the outside, it is also a point that you can take contact directly with people.

I developed FX-2 in Korea to develop robot technology and artificial intelligenceRainbw RoboticsA company called. Professor Jun-Ho Oh, a researcher at Rainbow Robotics, said, "This robot can move humans from point A to point B without physical effort, so it is useful for physically handicapped people It should also be used to carry the baggage because the power of the arm is very strong.I think that we have future possibilities. "

The developers are now focusing on improving the stability of the FX-2 so that the pilot will not fall down. In addition to being used industrially, the use for entertainment purposes is also taken into consideration, and the price will be less than 1 million dollars (about 131 million yen) when it is put on the market.
