Saturday Afternoon Robot Chat (Photos)

darwin-op robot

I spent a great afternoon down in Kanagawa learning all about the DARwin-OP humanoid robot from Sugiura-san and Shibata-san. Sugiura, one of the top independent design engineers responsible for leading-edge wind turbine equipment, is most well known to robot fans as the creator of the Dynamizer series of ROBO-ONE championship robots.

Shibata, who recently joined the Sugiura Machine Design Office, is a ROBO-ONE humanoid robot designer in his own right as well as having managed the design of several Kondo KHR-series robot kits. Earlier this year he expanded his activities internationally by winning top honors at RoboGames 2011.

I'll post the details of our afternoon discussion, including a lot of their insights and experience with DARwin-OP, in the next day or two. In the meantime, here are some of the photos we took:
