Francesco Fondi, of GAMERSWEB, sent us this video of Hina, a manga custom version of the Kondo KHR-2HV robot. It’s a scaled-down version of KHR-2HV, using 20 digital servos (KRS-788HV) plus one GWS-PICO-STD, all controlled by a small board located in the head. While it “makes coffee” only through the miracle of video editing, the dexterity and range of motion and the feeling of it being alive is pretty impressive. And I love watching a robot working an old hand-grinder.
