Isamu the Linux-powered humanoid robot
Author: JT Smith
LinuxDevices.com takes a look at Isamu, a Humanoid robot. From the article: "Isamu stands 53 inches tall, weighs 121 pounds, and walks at over one mile per hour. Not only that, Isamu climbs up and down stairs, carries 4-pound objects in its hand-like grippers, and even recognises human faces via its dual-camera stero vision system. Oh, and Isamu has a "brain" that consists of a dual-Pentium computer running RTLinux."
