In recent years we have experienced the ease and speed of communication technologies, such as the popularity of mobile phones, cars, computers and others. The existence of these tools can not be separated from human life, and has become part of everyday life. What about robots? Does the presence of robots in the future will also be a ‘normal’ in the middle of human life?
Honda company since several years ago has developed Asimo, the robot ‘humanoid’ robot that is designed or similar to the human body. ASIMO robot is introduced as a function to help humans in everyday life, such as preparing drinks for guests, pick up the car keys are left behind, or even as an assistant or family friends play. Asimo claimed to be able to climb stairs, kick a football, and doing the robot dance with pre-programmed movements.
If ‘Asimo’ was created with the human form, there are other robots that were created with mini size and is more entertainment or entertaining. These robots are capable of doing the funny, interesting and adorable, so popular among children.
One robot creator, Tomotaka Takahashi, sharing stories about his experiences in designing the robot. Takahashi is a professional robot builder who has had a myriad of achievements, one of which is to create a robot character ‘Evolta’. Evolta is actually a brand name company Panasonic battery output, which has won the Guinness Book of Records as the most durable battery. Takahashi collaboration with Panasonic, created the character ‘Evolta’, a mini robot that can climb a rope along the 530 meters with only 2 AA batteries power Evolta. Interestingly, along the 530-meter rope is stretched in the area of the Grand Canyon in America, one of the uniqueness in order to break the world record. Evolta managed to climb the rope in a total time of 6 hours 39 minutes, and video recordings have become advertisements Evolta battery, and was broadcast on television so that the face of the little ‘Evolta’ more famous.
Do not stop here, Takahashi also created a robot woman, whose existence is still very rare. This mini female robot on display in the exhibition ‘Robo Japan 2008′ and get a positive response from the audience because the movement is graceful and feminine.
“I think, now is not so much the type of robot women, because of technical problems. First, it is difficult to insert the battery into the machine and robot women. I have to use a smaller engine, so it is difficult in terms of design. Then, most researchers and robot is the creator of man, so we do not know how to create a robot woman. [Design] is not equal to merely dress, or give long hair, but must be of the form, for example, form the elbow, etc.. difficulty is the third female robot not be stable, because they have to be skinny. Thus, a total of 3 issues, and I have solved the problem so that these female robot created. ” he explained at length.
Popularity of the robot is not independent of technological advances. However, when tekonogi getting out of control, people can be defeated by ’science’ and forget about her own identity. In creating the robot as well as advancing technology, the human brain may use and maximize use of resources, but humans still have to continue to host and do not let ‘enslaved’ by technology. Did you know that any sophisticated robots still can not match the human brain? The man who can think clearly and control technology and is independent of him is a man who is responsible. Thus, although the robot is ready to be as popular as cell phones, remember that you as a human being is the Creator of Mobile Phones, as you are creating a robot!
