"I Feel The Need For Speed"

We're not sure exactly why, but there seems to be a lot of focus on robot sprinting recently. At the recent "Wonderful Robot Carnival" held here in Tokyo Arimaro 5, created by the Sumi Family took 1st place in the 2 meter sprint at 7.48 seconds barely edging out the MANOI AT01 piloted by Sugiura-san at 7.76 seconds. Then last night the Sumi Family reported on their blog that Arimaro 6 achieved a lightening fast 5.65 seconds in the 3 meter sprint held as a part of the Humanoid Cup event. What's their personal target for the 3 meter sprint? 4 seconds!
