Although they may freak us out from time to time, we're generally not afraid of robots. But show us a bot that moves faster than we can think and we may change our minds (even if he's only 10-inches tall). The Futuba has 11 high-torque motors that make it look like he's on speed. It can kick, punch, and lift itself up if it falls over. It comes with 15 pre-programmed moves (you can also use your PC or the bundled motion editor to program your own) and reminds us of our gymnastic robot (in its own rigid way). Its expected US price is $1,200 bucks. Video after the jump.
