Technically speaking, robots can’t sweat, but you can safely say that the bipedal vehicle known as Core is able to carry up to 100kg worth of stuff without even dropping a single bead of sweat. Thanks to fuRo, a division of the Chiba Institute of Technology, their research has resulted in the Core which stands at around 2 meters while tipping the scales at just 230kg. To make sure it can carry such heavy loads, motors and shock absorption were thrown into the mix to further help it move along. Perhaps the Core will be able to help those who are wheelchair-bound experience the feeling of walking in the future.
