The SCHAFT robotics company has unveiled a new bipedal robot which the brand has designed to help offer assistance to society in a number of different ways. The unit is designed as a low-cost, compact robot that can operate without high levels of power and that can lift up to 60-kilograms.
The SCHAFT robot, unveiled at New Economic Summit (NEST) 2016 in Japan, is still without a name although the bipedal robot is making waves for being ready to tackle various tasks. The robot from SCHAFT is great when it comes to climbing and descending stairs, which is a notoriously difficult task for robots.
The SCHAFT robotics company is owned by parent company Alphabet, which many will recall is the parent company of Google.
