Why do I have a feeling that Andy Warhol would have loved this thing?

You’re gawking at the the Hubo FX-1 by Hubo Lab (the Humanoid Robot Research Center). It’s, um, well … silly looking, so much so that this is my second attempt to properly document it here.

If you can’t get to YouTube, the video depicts someone sitting in the chair as the machine takes slow baby steps across a room.

Definitely a work-in-progress. I’d hate to be sitting in it when the thing trips and falls on someone’s banana peel.
