The Chinese brand calls its new brainchild "Metal Bro".
Chinese brand Xiaomi has unveiled its latest development - the first humanoid robot CyberOne, nicknamed "Metal Bro". The release of the device was a logical continuation of the development after the creation of the CyberDog robot dog in 2021.
Xiaomi reported that the technical and software functions developed for CyberDog have been successfully adapted to the new model. The first humanoid robot has a height of 177 cm, a weight of 52 kg and an arm span of 168 cm.
CyberOne received the Mi-Sense machine vision system, as well as built-in artificial intelligence technology for learning new movements, moving in space and interacting with other objects and people.
The robot is equipped with electric motors with a torque of 300 Nm and has more than twenty degrees of freedom in movement thanks to thirteen built-in joints.
Reaction speed is 0.5 ms, and movement speed in space is up to 3.6 km/h. CyberOne can hold objects weighing up to 1.5 kilograms. The robot recognizes 85 types of sounds, as well as 45 types of human emotions.
“With AI at its core and a full-size humanoid frame as its vessel, this is an exploration of possibilities of Xiaomi's future technological ecosystem and a new breakthrough for the company,” commented Lei Jiong, CEO of the company.
Whether serial production of humanoid robots will be launched is not yet known. But Xiaomi expects to use the latest developments when creating new products. The cost of the device today is about $90 000-105 000.
