The Canadian company Dr. Robot introduces a humanoid, autonomous, and wireless robot named Hawk. This unique robot has WiFi, a built-in GPS navigation system, an animated head, as well as a lot of other cameras and sensors that keep the robot functioning.
Originally intended for educational purposes, Hawk can only perform a limited range of tasks such as serving drinks and playing drums. However, his hands are quite advanced to say the least. Each arm has 6 joints and can reach up to two feet with a maximum lifting weight of 800 grams.
Its animated head contains two 640 x 480 color cameras that serve as its eyes, while its chest has a 3.5-inch color display that can play .wmv files. Its localizations and navigation skills provide a collision-free movement from point A to point B.
Hawk is currently on sale. Although there is no price listed for the actual robot, base parts of Hawk are available within $5,000 range.
