Humanoid robots battle in Japanese competition March 26, 2010

I spotted this video in an internal email going around at NI. A Japanese robot wrestling competition was covered by the nightly news in China. Looks like the NI logo made it onto the big screen, although I’m not sure how (or if) NI technologies were used in the competition. LabVIEW has been used to program many humanoid robots before though, so I wouldn’t be surprised if some of these robots are powered by the NI software.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I bet RoMeLa’s DARWIN humanoid robot would have been a formidable opponent in this robot battle. I’ve seen some serious karate moves from him in the past.
