The robot is called Cyber One. 3D visual reconstructions of the world can be created using it.
It also enjoys walking.
In a press release Thursday, the company announced the robot, which is actually a new iteration of an existing "Cyber" series ofrobots.
CyberOne is not like a dog. It is 177 cm tall and has an arm span of 168 cm.
"CyberOne supports up to 21 degrees of freedom in motion and has a real-time response speed of 0.5ms for each degree of freedom, which allows it to fully mimic human movements," the company said. It doesn't seem to be very gracious about it, but at least it's willing to make fun of it. It can hold up to 1.5 kilogram in weight, so maybe it can help you out with groceries.

Cyber One can see 3D space and recognize people. It has an artificial intelligence-powered "semantics recognition engine" that can recognize 85 different types of environmental sounds and 45 different types of human emotion. It can comfort you when you're sad. What about the grocery items?
It's not clear what the future holds for Cyber One. In a press release, the company said that robotics is a "crown jewel of manufacturing," and went on to explain how complex it was to put all this tech together into a single unit. The technology applied to CyberOne will trickle into otherXiaomi products in the future.
It's unlikely that any of us will seeXiaomi's robot in our homes or anywhere outside a tech fair anytime soon, but it will be interesting to compare it withTesla's upcoming humanoid robot.
