Xiaomi beats Tesla to creating a working robot

Just forget about that crazy-thin foldable phone from earlier. Xiaomi just beat Tesla to unveiling an operating humanoid robot prototype at a live event earlier today, and yes, it looks awfully familiar. The Xiaomi CyberOne is 177cm (5.8 feet) tall, weighs 52kg (115 pounds), is nicknamed “Metal Bro” and is particularly somehow given a zodiac sign, Leo. Following a short walk to the center of the stage, the CyberOne gave CEO Lei Jun a flower (for reasons uknown), before it politely accepted a selfie with the person in charge of its individual existence. The bot could walk off the stage without the drama.

The CyberOne may be the second product appearing out of the Xiaomi Robotics Lab, following the CyberDog from August 2021. The humanoid machine includes a face by means of a curved OLED panel, it could start to see the world in 3D, hear with two microphones and identify 45 forms of emotions from human vocal expressions. Its body includes a total of 21 levels of freedom, which are enabled by 13 joints. Its upper limb actuators can operate with a precision as high as 1Nm for a gentle touch, and its own legs are powered by actuators rated at around 300Nm. But needless to say, the CyberOne is actually nowhere near as nimble as Boston Dynamics’ Atlas.

Regardless of the surprising live demo, Lei said that for the present time, each CyberOne would cost somewhere in the number of 600,000 to 700,000 yuan (about $89,100 to $104,000), so it will likely be some time before his company deems it ideal for mass production, if. It will likely be interesting to observe how Elon Musk responds to the lookalike of their own big boy, though he’s probably just a little distracted nowadays.
