Mujaki is modifying the tiny VS-S020 servo motors sold by Vstone for their Robovie-nano kit, to make them even smaller. As a result, he expects the new robot will stand 22cm (8.6″) tall – that’s 14cm (5.5″) less than HINA! Quite a feat, considering the robot will pack 4 degrees of freedom per arm, and 6 in each leg. It’ll be interesting to see how this miniaturization project goes in the coming weeks, and if he’ll decide to shrink the head a bit, which would make the new bot even smaller.
