During the “Lei Jun Speech” event, Chinese tech company Xiaomi debuted CyberOne, a humanoid robot. After the robotic canine CyberDog made its debut last year, this is China’s first humanoid robot.
High Emotional Quotient Humanoid Robot
The CEO of Xiaomi, Lei Jun, gave a speech to the entire world in which he described the different breakthroughs that his company has made possible for society, including the autonomous vehicle, the ground-breaking foldable smartphone, and the CyberOne humanoid robot.
The humanoid robot presented the CEO with a flower when they were seen together on stage. The CyberOne performed a few tricks and then, as first reported by Business Insider, took a selfie with Jun.
The CyberOne, according to Xiaomi, has cutting-edge arms and legs that permit bipedal movements and posture stability. The humanoid robot has highly advanced vision capabilities, according to the manufacturer, and its high emotional quotient allows it to recognize human emotions.
The two microphones and two cameras on CyberOne allow it to hear and see in three dimensions. In order to better assess human voice expressions, it can also detect 45 different emotions utilizing microphones.
5 feet 8 inches tall and 52 kilos in weight, this humanoid robot (177 cm). While gripping onto objects, it can walk at a speed of 3.6 km/h.
What Will It Cost?
Since CyberOne is still in development, it might take longer for Xiaomi to formally launch this robot on the market.
The price range for CyberOne devices might be somewhere between CNY 600,000 and CNY 700,000 (approximately $89,000 to $103,000). The price will need to be significantly decreased if the company intends to construct it on a large scale, according to BusinessInsider.
The autonomous humanoid robot’s evolution as an assistant in the future still requires a lot of work, claims Xiaomi CEO. However, it looks a lot like the Tesla Optimus, right down to its shockingly similar black face and white body.
But unlike what CyberOne has subsequently shown, the Tesla Optimus did not speak or move around when Elon Musk first unveiled it.
There is no information on when the Tesla Optimus and Xiaomi CyberOne will be made available to the general public, despite the stunning display that these robots provided.
