Until now. What could possibly have more real world application than a control system for (potentially) giant robots? I submit: nothing.
The video below demonstrates the V-Sido real-time control system for humanoids as modelled by a … GR-001(RS303,RS304) HPI. Which I presume is some kind of robot, right, since there it is.
The future is now and it’s got giant robot battles in it. Aww yiss.
