      New technology, SHIN-Walk (enables human-like walk without constantly bent knees)
      TIME Coolest Inventions 2004

      Chroino is a small humanoid robot with friendly appearance and sophisticated movements. A newly-developed outer covering that serves also as a frame is called a “monocoque frame” and is made of carbon and plastic, giving Chroino a friendly appearance, light weight and strong frame.

      Using a new technology named SHIN-Walk, Chroino has the ability to walk more naturally than traditional robots that walk stiffly with constantly bent knees. The ability to walk naturally, similar to a human, have long been expected. Thanks to this latest advancement in technology developed by Robo Garage, SHIN-Walk allows Chroino to walk almost as smoothly as a human.

      Chroino was created by Mr. Tomotaka Takahashi from Robo Garage, the only scientist involved in the entire development process – from the design to the production stage – to create this futuristic robot.

      Name:  “Chroino,” coinage made from the words “to chronicle” and “black,” which is pronounced kuroi in Japanese.
      Operation: Radio control, Playback of recorded movements, or Control from a wired PC
      • FT [FEMALE TYPE]

      • Name: FT - Than an initial of FemaleType
        Tomotaka Takahashi
        Materials: Carbon and plastic
        Height: 35cm
        Weight: 800g
        Degree of freedom: 23
        Battery: Lithium polymer

        FT is the result of Tomotaka Takahashi’s desire to create a female type robot. I took over a year of development by Takahashi, who believes that half of all robots will be “female” in the near future. FT’s parts were designed specially to express a lean, feminine body line. Twenty-three motors, controlled by an onboard computer allow FT to move gracefully; SHIN-Walk enable her to walk like a woman. In addition, Takahashi consulted with professional fashion models to make FT’s movements even more lifelike.
