Japan is building TERMINATOR robots (to install drywall)

Sharing is Caring!

Japanese researchers at the Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) research center have developed a prototype humanoid robot, the HRP-5P, designed to autonomously perform heavy labor in hazardous environments.

Standing just under 6-feet tall and clocking in at 222 lbs, the HRP-5P has “unsurpassed physical capabilities,” according to Phys.org, and is fitted with an array of sensors in order to fully assess its environment to perform various tasks.

In one demonstration, the HRP-5P shows of its skills grabbing standard 77 lb. boards of drywall typically used in construction.

Aside from construction, AIST’s robot has compelling applications at aircraft facilities, shipyards or any other environment in which heavy things need to be lifted or manipulated – particularly in hazardous environments.
