At ROBO-ONE , the battle and competition of biped robots have been done in Japan. I had been thinking to try making biped robot, but the hurdle of enrollment was difficult for the beginner.

There have been "Robot Kingdom" of the robot specialty store in the 3rd floor of the "Tsukumo Pasokon" main office at Akihabara, Tokyo. For collecting the robot information, I sometimes visited. Then I knew that a biped robot kit "KHR-1" from KONDOU KAGAKU CO.,LED was on sale. I purchased it and decided to challenge making up the robot(Aug.1st 2004).

Concerning the personal computer, being able to understand, however I had no knowledge about the robot. "KHR-1" is easily assembled with a driver, was written on the instruction manual. I recorded the process of bulding it up as the production diary and began to release in my web site (Aug.21st 2004).

I completed "KHR-1" on September 19th 2004. As the various option parts have been sold for KHR-1, those were purchased and then my KHR-1 was remodelled. The remodelling robot "BLACK TIGER" which KHR-1 as the base, was completed on June 3rd 2006. At this oppotunity of completed of "BLACK TIGER", I also started to join the competition meeting of the biped robot from June 2006.

The motion ability of "BLACK TIGER" is not so high comparing the other competitors' robots because of using the kit as the base. Therefore, I began to make the new custom built biped robot using high power acutuators on December 3rd 2006. The prototype of new custom built robot "BLACK TIGER NEO" was completed on December 31st 2006. Presently it continues to improve of the new one and to add autonomous fighting system. I also began to make a new multi-legged robot , and the prototype of the robot was completed on December 23rd, 2009.

I am writing web sites contents (in Japanese) including the diary page ( in Japanese ) as the memo/note for myself. I started to upload this site 'My Biped Robot Page' on Aug. 17th 2008 and also started blog site 'BIPED ROBOT NEWS JAPAN' on Nov. 1st, 2008 for the hobbyists of biped robot all over the world. If someone who tries to challenge in making of biped robot refers my sites, that's my pleasure.
