Hall 1 – IRC Korea 2010

Some of you saw the Diary Of A Mad Roboticist! post 2 months ago where Andrew and I were getting ready to fly over to Korea and do some humanoid competing. As usual we were biting off way more than we could chew and were building robots up until hours before leaving on a 22 hour trip.  It turned out we were being over zealous as usual too, because the competitions were way more chill than what we expected. So we spent much more of our time meeting people and exploring the wonders of Korea than competing. Andrew did get to do some exhibition matches with the local college students and Giger fell over a lot. Andrew also got a lot of R&D time in with a future humanoid code named Shadow Blade (Video) (all RX-24F servos!) which should be on shelves in 2011. Andrew ALSO did a lot of work on the RX-24/28 PLM robot also coming out in 2011 which will be a “soldier” series bot specifically designed for fighting. Coming later-ish maybe… a 3rd video of Andrew and I exploring Korea. That video needs, um, editing due to copious amounts of soju being consumed during the making.
