ALBERT EINSTEIN HUBO
dallas - special prize
The Albert Hubo is a unique, completely battery-powered, untethered walking body. The Albert Hubo is the first ever walking robot with realistic, humanlike expressions. Our Frubberâ„¢ material makes this possible, because it requires MUCH less force to move into facial expressions than do previous materials (less than 1/20th the force and energy than the softest animatronics materials, according to published tests). This means that the Albert head can run for hours on AA batteries, be mobile, and mounted on a walking robot body. The expressions are lifelike-as can be seen in this movie.
