RX Bot on the run

Korea has built its first robot which is capable of running, is two foot tall and network controlled RX. The bot is capable of running at a pace of about .3 miles per hour; not exactly an athletic type and is certainly no match for ASIMO’s brisk 1.8 miles per hour. Robotis, the company behind the development of bot, spent approx. $1 million in collaboration with Samsung and the Korean Ministry of Information and Communication. As Korea plans for an army of network-controlled bots, we won’t mind RX being a bit slow as long as we can outrun him, and as also he stands only two feet in height, we can feel a lot better for the future.
