CHARLI-L2 First Walking Test

Friday, July 22nd, 2011

I had the pleasure of meeting up with the Virginia Tech RoMeLa crew at Robocup 2011 earlier this month, where they were showing off not only a Kid-Size team full of Darwin-OP robots, but also their new CHARLI-L2 humanoid. Popular Science already did a nice write-up of CHARLI’s performance in the Adult-size league, but I found this video of CHARLI-L2 taking his first steps (in the nude) to be equally interesting.

We’ll have a bunch of content on my trip to Robocup 2011 in Istanbul, Turkey in the very near future! Stay tuned!

Amazing Robotics Presentation From RoMeLa

Friday, January 29th, 2010

Dr. Dennis Hong, who is in charge of the RoMeLa program at Virginia Tech recently made a presentation at TEDx showcasing some of his department’s very advanced, very cool robotics projects! I couldn’t help but notice watching through this rather lengthy video (it’s worth watching all of it, trust me) that a good number of Dynamixels from Robotis made an appearance. Check it out!
