China’s Unitree Releases Affordable Humanoid Robot for $89,000

Affordable Option in the Market

Unitree, a Chinese robotics company, has launched its H1 Evolution V2.0 humanoid robot, offering an affordable option for consumers at just $89,000. Compared to other humanoid robots on the market, this price tag is significantly lower, making it more accessible to a wider audience.

Impressive Autonomous Abilities

The H1 Evolution V2.0 robot showcases its advanced capabilities in a video demonstration. It exhibits the ability to navigate unknown and uneven terrains without falling, thanks to its advanced technology, including the "LIVOS-MID360 3D LiDAR system and Intel RealSense D435i depth camera." This allows the robot to acquire real-time high-precision spatial data for panoramic scanning.

The Bowling Ball Test

While the robot's autonomous navigation skills are impressive, one question remains: can it dodge a rolled bowling ball? This may seem like an odd question, but it's a concern for some, especially those who live near bowling alleys. In the event of a robot uprising, having access to a large supply of bowling balls could be a potential defense strategy.

World's First Full-Sized General Purpose Humanoid Robot in China

The H1 Evolution V2.0 weighs just over 100 pounds and is being marketed as the world's first full-sized general purpose humanoid robot that can run in China. However, it raises the question of whether it can operate in other countries as well. If it can run in the United States, for example, its speed becomes a significant factor. This could determine whether individuals need to start a cardio regimen to increase their chances of surviving a robot apocalypse.
