Boffins at the Digital Human Laboratory of Tokyo's National Institute of Advanced Science and Technology will show off a human-shaped robot that runs on Linux.
The 137cm robot runs on two Pentium III 750Mhz processors using RT Linux. It will make its first public appearance at the Embedded Linux Expo in Milan on 26-27 November.
It walks, shuffles, and connects to a network, and it is hoped that it will become a useful plaform for other robotic developments - perhaps leading to advanced Terminator-style robotics.
RT Linux was designed for robotic applications, as well as data aquistion and systems control.
