What's Next? Battle Robot GunWalker?
Given that Kyosho is the primary sponsor behind the promotion of the new MANOI humanoid robot, it’s interesting to speculate about what other robots they might be planning in the near future.
Adopting different housing designs and software to the KHR-1 platform in the same way that MANOI was developed, might result in some really exciting, if expensive, robots. One of the most obvious Kyosho candidates for repackaging would be GunWalker.
The basic design already exists and has a following here in Japan, and perhaps overseas. The current model is R/C controlled, but it wouldn’t be hard to come up with a KHR-1 version that would sell like hotcakes.
