Chroino is a diminutive humanoid robot designed by Tomotaka Takahashi of Kyoto University’s ROBO-GARAGE. A beautiful exterior body gives this robot much of its character.
Panasonic held a press event before sending Evolta 2.0 off to the race track.
Tomotaka Takahashi was approached by Panasonic to create a robotic mascot for their Evolta brand of batteries. The resulting robot was designed to climb a rope, and was tested on the Grand Canyon!
On June 12th 2009 Panasonic officially announced that their Evolta robot, powered by 2 AA batteries, would attempt a new world record at Le Mans 24 hours in France.
