"Morph", a 13.6-inch tall wireless humanoid device, could be used as part of recovery missions in disaster areas.
A project team sponsored by the Japanese government has joined electronic component maker Murata Manufacturing in developing what the company claims to be the world's first Bluetooth-enabled humanoid robot.
The 13.6-inch tall "Morph" is primarily a product of the government-sponsored Kitatno Symbiotic Systems Project, one of Japan's leading humanoid robot developers. Morph is the team's basic robot platform for human-movement reproduction.
