Meet Robovie-X PRO, Japan's newest mini humanoid

Osaka-based robot maker Vstone today unveiled a humanoid called Robovie-X Pro, an update of the Robovie-X the company presented back in September.

The new model stands 38cm tall (the former one was 34cm high) and weighs about 2kg. It features 19 joints (one in the arm, six in the arms and 12 in the legs), a USB port and a special robot CPU (VS-RC003HV). The robot is powered by a 6V nickel metal hydride battery.

Vstone sells the Robovie-X Pro for $3,800 (a dock is included in the price) but only in Japan.
