Russia builds its first realistic female android
Robot Launchpad stashed this in +Robots+
Whoa. I figured the Japanese would be the first for some reason.
Well, HRP 4 from Japan is pretty 'mature' tech - just largely remote controlled.
So the main difference in this one is no remote control?
I'm fairly sure that this one is also very remote control. It's had far less development time - however by doing away with the legs, there is reduced complexity to manage. (Alina is on wheels)
Humanoids are hard.
