The robot that literally ran away with the top prize in the Demonstration phase of the 9th Robo-One competition held here in Tokyo on March 18-19th, 2006, was OMNIZERO.2, the brainchild of Takeshi Maeda. Not only is the robot a technical tour-de-force, Maeda is also quite a showman. His 2 minute demonstration of the robot's capabilities included putting it to sleep, waking up, running, jumping, posing, and visual object tracking. And, right at the end of his performance, Maeda puts the robot back to sleep and wishes it sweet dreams. OMNIZERO.2 is definitely the 'state of the art' in Robo-One class robots today.
