Fashion robot runs real-time Linux 

,----[ Quote ]
| Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology 
| (AIST) has demonstrated a Linux-based humanoid robot that will perform in a 
| fashion show next week. The HRP-4C runs the robotics-focused hard real-time 
| ART-Linux distro, which was released this week for Linux 2.6xx under GPL.   
| The HRP-4C robot and the open-source ART-Linux distro (see more farther 
| below) were developed by AIST's Human Robotics Group (HRG). ART (Advanced 
| Real-Time) Linux has been used in a variety of humanoid robot prototypes from 
| the Japanese government-backed HRG/AIST, says the group. The newest HRP-4C 
| model announced earlier this week has been a hit on YouTube (see below). 
| Designed to look like a young Japanese woman, the robot stands (and walks) 
| about five feet, two inches (158 centimeters), and weighs about 95 pounds (43 
| kilograms).
