    Great topic!

    This is soo neat!

    It now poses a new question;

    At what point will robots actually be able to take place in real time combat??

    Yes, we are very far away, but we are never the less on the path...

    Will human sport combat be replaced by robot combat?

    Will one day we see a kung fu robot vs a karate robot? This will be very interesting to see techniques played out in combat situations with out the fear of killing. A fight competition with no rules other than "disable your oponent"....

    My Japanese is limited.

    However, the company makes agricultural machinery.

    The robot only fires rubber balls.

    It moves like a snail even slower than a Tai Chi practitioner.

    But the concept of building one and marching in the battle field will be like an episode in Star Wars by George Lucas films.

    I guess they did it to to imitate the robot from Kawada industries:

    But the whole point of the HRP-2 dancing was to saving Japanese traditional dance from dying out. Does this mean we will need to save our forms from extinctions as well? :S
