HR-2 bot walks, talks, sets fires

hr-2 robot

Almir Heralic at the Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden looks like he may be the next toymaker to the king — either that, or he's getting ready for world domination. His HR-2 robot may be small — think Kondo KHR-1, rather than ASIMO — but don't let its size fool you. According to Heralic, his bot has fluid movement, a neural net, speech functions and stereo vision coupled with facial recognition and tracking capabilities. We just hope that the pic shown, from Heralic's website, is meant to merely show HR-2's scale, and not a predilection for playing with matches.
