The practice session video we posted recently showing OmniZero.4 climbing a ladder was definitely impressive. But, what if that same robot could also dance around the ring like a professional boxer... And, what if the robot could actually jump rope - not just one lucky hop, but a whole series of jumps while managing the rope by itself...? And, what if the robot could get out a frying pan, crack some eggs, and fix your breakfast...?
Too much to expect from a robot, or for his creator? No, not for OmniZero.4 and Takeshi Maeda. For them, it's all in a day's work. Find that hard to believe? Well, just take a look at their award winning performance recorded last Saturday afternoon during the ROBO-ONE 11 demonstration phase competitions.
Maeda's Omni series of humanoid robot designs have been consistent winners based on their technical excellence. For example, Omni series robots have captured the ROBO-ONE demonstration phase championship 3 times and came in second another three times.
