ICA 2001 520 x 100 cm plaster, LED

Icarus was human, who first fly to sky in the world, But, he was dead, too close to sun, in Greek myth. ICA was make around10,000 unit and module and close to human working style. don’t want to make robot to same human being.

In 2005 and 2006, the Das Royd was a concept model with robot structure design by Lee Dae Suk (ICA), the CEO of Roy n’ Block and award-winning leader in next generation design from Knowledge Economy Minister in Korea. Reason of making new robot’s structure and unit, module is future for human being.

These were the aluminum works invited to the exhibit. The unique structure and shape caused a lot of attention at home and abroad.

Lee Dae Suk has attempted to combine the field of RT (robot technology) to design with a new angle on structural analysis and proposal under the new paradigm in terms of industry, and accordingly a variety of robot motion and energy efficiency have been proposed.

In addition, he has also presented to the forums and exhibited “ICA series-the robot structure in order to popularize the robot and its culture, and he planned MECHA-POD (battle robot toy) with the robot and its structure applied to the toy industry.

As MECHA-POD being produced and managed by himself, he led the companies in the same field with presenting its own revenue model. Currently, the MECHA- POD were sold out 20,000 in the United States, and local marketing and new robot product development is proceeding.

CHARLI was born in the lab of Dennis Hong, the robot maker who was chosen as one of Popular Science's Brilliant 10 in 2009


- Popular Science



A group of undergraduate and graduate students at the Virginia Tech College of Engineering's Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory (RoMeLa) have unveiled CHARLI, which they are calling the first full-sized, walking, untethered, humanoid robot, complete with four moving limbs and a head, to be built in the United States. While walking robots are nothing new, this one's humanoid counterparts, such as Petman and Honda's Asimo, are apparently disqualified for lack of height, autonomy, and nation of origin.



Dennis Hong is the founder of VT’s Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory and the leader of the student team that built CHARLI-L. We’re seated at a workbench inside the University of Pennsylvania’s robotics lab, run by Hong’s friend and collaborator Daniel Lee. Hong’s students are here to show CHARLI-L to Lee’s students, to prepare for RoboCup 2010, held in June in Singapore, and to discuss upcoming partnerships. Hong (winner of a 2009 Popular Science Brilliant 10 award) and his students have produced chemically driven, amoeba-like robots; a spider-like ’bot called STRiDEr, whose swinging walk is modeled on the human gait; and a system by which blind adults can make guided yet independent decisions as the drivers of their own cars. Lee’s students build complex software to govern robot behavior and human-robot interaction. These are some of the most accomplished robotics engineers in the field. But as I watch the students fiddle with CHARLI-L, it begins to dawn on me how much work stands between CHARLI-L and the RoboCup trophy, to say nothing of how much work it will take to reach a future full of robot helpers.

The World’s 3rd Running Humanoid Robot

KAIST’s
HUBO 2 has recently become the world’s third full-sized humanoid robot capable of running (after Honda’s ASIMO and Toyota’s Partner Robots – SONY’s QRIO was technically the first bipedal robot capable of running in 2003, but it was only 60cm tall).  In the last video (in which HUBO 2 performs TaiChi) we saw the robot in its incomplete form doing some running tests.  Now it appears that KAIST has got a complete robot running at 3.6kmph with 30cm strides, and improved its walking speed from 1.2kmph to 1.8kmph.  In order to qualify as “running”, both of the robot’s feet must be off the ground simultaneously during the flight phase of the running gait (HUBO 2’s feet are in the air for approximately 20~30ms).
