Xiaomi launches a humanoid robot called CyberOne

If you thought last year’s Xiaomi CyberDog was exciting, wait until you see Xiaomi’s latest AI machine. Alongside the Mix Fold 2, the Chinese phone maker unveiled a full-sized humanoid robot called CyberOne. The company claims it can detect human emotions and even create 3D visual representations of the world.

CyberOne surprised everyone when he joined CEO Lei Jun on stage and handed him a flower. Equipped with advanced legs and arms, the robot supports bipedal movement posture balance and has a maximum torque of 300Nm.

“CyberOne’s AI and mechanical capabilities have been developed by Xiaomi Robotics Lab itself. We have invested heavily in R&D in various areas such as software, hardware and algorithm innovation. With AI at its core and a humanoid framework full-sized as a ship, it is an exploration of the possibilities of Xiaomi’s future technology ecosystem and a new breakthrough for the company,” said Lei Jun, founder, president and CEO of Xiaomi Group.

The company also revealed that the CyberOne weighs 52 kg, stands 177 cm tall and has an arms span of 168 cm. CyberOne has 21 degrees of freedom in motion with a real-time response speed of 0.5ms per degree, allowing it to easily simulate human movements.

Since this was a demo, it remains to be seen if CyberOne will remain a proof of concept or if the company will be able to mass produce the humanoid. We hope to see CyberDog and CyberOne taking a ride in the coming years.
