New Robot Kit Coming In December (Video)
There isn't much in the way of detailed information available yet, but what we do know is that next month a new low end hobby robot kit named 'Gogic Five' will be unveiled by SK-Pang. The kit is designed for young people, entry level hobbyists and experimenters as a way to get started with humanoid type robotics without all the complexity and cost of a full ROBO-ONE type design.
The name comes from the Japanese word 'go' meaning five (the robot uses five servomotors), and is word play on "Go! Go!", as you can tell from the promotional animation video clip below. We've also been lead to believe that the basic design is a little "GOthic."
The founders of SK-Pang are several well known Japanese humanoid robot developers and ROBO-ONE players including T. Maeda, M. Nakamura, and K. Masumoto. And, their skills include much more than just robot design. As a result, in addition to producing and marketing robot kits, the company also creates robot performance shows, original background music and theme songs, and stages major robot competitions and events.
