Over in Japan, Kyosho has announced the upcoming availability of an enhanced, roided-up version of its Manoi AT01 robot, the Manoi PF01. Compared to the previous Manoi, this version will be better in every aspect: taller, heavier and with more bells and whistles than ever before to keep you entertained. Part of this is because of the adoption of a new type of batter. Unlike the old Nickel Hyride battery that is more common, this Manoi will use a Lithium Polymer batter, which provides not only longer battery life, but is lighter, too. Isn't that special?

The Manoi PF01 will be available in Japan this November, but no pricing details are known right now.
