Cool Older Robot

I found a video on YouTube.com that is absolutely amazing. It is an anthropomorphic robot that has tons of degrees of freedom. It uses the old legacy 9 volt motors, and it appears that there are no rotation sensors, so I am guessing that all the movements are from a bank of RCXs or controlled manually. I hear beeps and blips, so I bet it is controlled by RCXs.

It reminds me of some of the very popular commercially available robots such as Bioloid.

It’s cool and really inspiring. I originally thought that the user “legoasimo” was arrogant, but I don’t think so anymore.
