What is the bipedal humanoid robot "Kaleido"?

Kaleido is a bipedal humanoid robot developed by Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Kawasaki Heavy Industries).

Kawasaki Heavy Industries has a history of more than 50 years in the field of industrial robots, and is conducting research and development of Kaleido as an industry-academia collaboration project with the University of Tokyo.

Kedeido was unveiled for the first time in the world as far back during the "2017 International Robot Exhibition" in December 2017.
