The Korea Institute of Science and Technology yesterday features the humanoid robot “Maru” at its research center in northern Seoul. Korea has become the second nation after Japan to have a humanoid robot that can move its upper body while walking. The think tank also displayed a robot that can watch and follow human movement. Shown here is the household robot “Maru-M” carrying a cup by imitating a person’s movement. The robots unveiled will also be exhibited at the 2008 Robot World at the COEX Center in southern Seoul Thursday through Sunday.
