Maido-kun: Japan plans to send humanoid to the moon by 2015

According to the Osaka edition of the YomiuriOnline newspaper the “Lacuna Oriented Higashiosaka Important Conjunction”, also known as SOHLA, announced their plan to build a 2 leg Robot, Madio-Kun, or humanoid in order to be fully operational for space travel and especially to be operated on the surface of the Moon by 2015.

This $10.5 Million project seem very ambitious indeed, and while the SOHLA recognize the difficulty of the task they are however very confident in achieving it within 5 years…

    I’m very curious if they will achieve that in 5 years time. But if they’re that confident, why couldn’t they do it with today’s technology?

    It’s quite interesting. I guess Madio-kun will be much safer than Robby the Robot.

    Maybe, we could just send all our bad politicians. It would be less expensive.
