Robot Force, located in Osaka, created a really unique, yet fully functional 3 servo bipedal robot prototype that is capable of walking, fighting, and even standing back up when it lands on the floor. Their design was so unusual and creative that Robot Magazine, one of the most popular US publications covering hobby, science, and consumer robotics, devoted half a page in their LERN (Leading Edge Robotics News) section to coverage of the Robot Force creation (see photos below).
Robot Magazine covers all the top stories in the world of robotics, and often features exclusive coverage.
The Robot Force article appears in the Fall 2006 issue on page 14.
