Android shows off people-lifting skills

AndroidIn a public demonstration held in Tokyo on March 28, a human-sized android showed off its weightlifting skills by successfully picking up a 30-kilogram (66-pound) package from a desk and lifting a 66-kilogram (145-pound) humanoid doll out of bed.

The 155-centimeter (61-inch) tall, 70-kilogram (154-pound) robot demonstrated different maneuvers for different situations; only a small amount of power is applied at each of this robot’s joints, but it can successfully move heavy objects by using the tactile sensors to regulate how it lifts and carries things.
