HUBO 2 Available for Purchase

Have a spare $400,000 to invest in a humanoid? Then you can be the proud owner of HUBO 2, a product of the KAIST Hubo Lab that brought us the FX-1. Dr. Jun Ho Oh and team built the bot by creating the hardware first knowing that the software can be added later. In development during the last ten years, HUBO 2 is fairly advanced but undoubtedly will someday give way to the next generation.

And just so you know that you are getting your money's worth, take a peek at the first video that features the humanoid tossing the opening pitch at a recent Cubs-Phillies game in Philadelphia. We also found this recent demonstration at Drexal University with 7 of them performing The Beatles tune "Come Together."
