Takeshi Maeda’s OmniZero.9 – complete *robogasm*



Check out the latest bipedal humanoid robot by admired roboticist and evil genius, Takeshi Maeda – the completed OmniZero.9!  This is a very interesting design, and appears faster than OmniZero.7, which is of comparable size.  Maybe I am dreaming, but it almost looks like Kaneda’s motorcycle from AKIRA has transformed into a robot!  …Well, maybe it’s just my imagination, but it’d be pretty cool if it was.  Although Maeda-san is a professional who works for robotics company Vstone, I feel like everyone in the hobby community can be inspired by his creations.  You can see a few work-in-progress photos & CAD screenshots that we looked at here, and at his site.
