CHARLI seems to be one fascinating composition of technology and metal, as he is America's first full-sized humanoid robot. Created by Dr. Dennis Hong and his army of students attending Virgina Tech, CHARLI is actually the first of his kind to ever be completely built in the States.

He was prepared for the RoboCup competition and has been getting pumped since his unveiling. CHARLI definitely looks ready to kick some robot butt and I'll be cheering him on!

Implications - CHARLI, otherwise known as Cognitive Humanoid Autonomous Robot with Learning Intelligence, is the autonomous robot that is currently available for purchase in two distinct versions. This is definitely something that you are going to want to pick.
