The sky’s the limit for Yume Robo

Recently introduced at the Shanghai Expo, Yume Robo, developed by Musclecorp is an extraordinary robot that is designed to climb structures up to an unlimited height. It uses Musclecorp’s state of the art “Cool Muscle2″ AC servo system located in the neck, shoulders, waist and hips to help it climb. Yume Robo is touted to be able to climb up to an unlimited height, so you can be sure he won’t suffer from acrophobia (fear of heights). The robot is purely built just to showcase Musclecorp’s technology, but I can imagine in the future, with some additional programming, the robot should be able to scale tall buildings to rescue people in cases of emergencies, or even save people in mountains or maybe cats stuck in trees. Watch a video demonstration of Yume Robo after the break:
