The first walking robot capable of carrying a human was unveiled on Friday in Tokyo, Japan.
WL-16 uses 12 actuators to move forwards, backwards and sideways while carrying an adult weighing up to 60 kilograms (130 pounds).
OK, so it’s more like a wheelchair with legs, which, if it could climb stairs, would be a tremendous advantage for the disabled. But we’re only a quick size-up from a walking, rocket-shooting battle tank.
