Japanese beat doll...wonderful work of engineering!

» posted 4361 days ago @ 02:56 AM by George Merlocco in technology

It's time for another video folks! (I promise to start posting more relevant issues to the world of webdesign, but since this site is still a work in progress, this will have to do!). I came across this video and had to post it locally because I never want to forget about this dancing work of art. I would buy one, but the problem is, this thing is SO advanced (and there's only one), so it's just not available at this time. Anyways, have a look below to see what I'm talking about...don't miss the links to the creators' sites after it too!

If anyone ever follows this project to the point where you can buy one of these, please don’t forget to post it back here!

Hey man,

I’ve looked into this more, and it’s a super-technical device of which probably only ONE exists…sucks, but if I find out where you can buy one (if ever) then I will surely add the info to this post!

$30,000 damn. Looks like they’re really only interested in selling to other robot researchers for now.

If it could be made much cheaper with the same responsiveness, I would for sure buy it. Would be like a buddy chilling with you while you work!

Oh well, maybe Keepon v2.0 will be highly optimized and much less expensive…(yea right!)
