Linux robot man treks into Europe

Author: JT Smith

Reported at ZDNet UK: "Japanese scientists are planning to demonstrate a walking, Linux-operated, humanoid
robot at an open source event in Italy next month.

The bipedal H7 robot is around 137cm tall (54 inches), and weighs 55kg (121 pounds). It has 36
joints--or "degrees of freedom"--which H7's developers claim means it has full body motion.
An onboard computer, built around two Pentium III 750MHz processors, runs the RT-Linux
operating system."
