Humanoid robot. Time-exposure image of WABIAN (Waseda bipedal humanoid) R-II watched by roboticists as it walks. WABIAN R-II is capable of walking independently, but it does so in a shaky side-to-side manner. It has a humanoid figure with two legs, two arms, two hands and two eyes in a mechanical head. It is also capable of dancing with its human operator and it can recognise several human gestures, including "Come here" and "Go away". WABIAN was created by roboticists at the Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan.
