HISTORY
The body of Albert Hubo is based on the third version of the KAIST Humanoid Robot (KHR-3), introduced in 2004, which also originated the Hubo humanoid series. The projects were led by Professor Jun-Ho Oh, a researcher at KAIST and director of the Hubo Lab. The head of Albert Hubo was made by Hanson Robotics, a company specializing in ultra-realistic androids (most famous for its Philip K. Dick android).
