A video of Hina [JP], a small female humanoid, is currently causing a sensation in the Japanese blogosphere. It shows Hina first grinding coffee beans, then brewing coffee before finally serving it to her master. And the little robot does it all by herself.
I have no idea how they did this, but the video (essentially a silent mini movie) is the best thing you’ll see all day.
Hina features a total of 21 joints (6 in each arm, 4 in each leg and one in her neck). The video has been viewed on Japanese geek video portal Nico Nico Douga [JP] over 100,000 times in 24 hours.
The video below is taken from YouTube as Nico Nico makes it hard to embed content – but it’s the same.
