From the text behind the robot I can see the name of a new servo KRS2552HV with 20kg-cm and new board RCB4HV. 20 servos. comes standard with wireless and probably gyro. sounds like fun.

A fresh video of KHR-3HV from RT Corp.,
It seem KHR3-HV has a number of flexibility (extensions) including chest and arms. New Servo KRS-2552HV has 14Kgcm torque.

Hello guys,
I think so it has five extensions like servo size for optional adding. Two for elbow, two for hip and one for waist.
I see other two extensions in the arms, may be for grippers?
Anybody know more details?

That's an 'advance order' form for the KHR-3HV. Here's rough translation:

KHR-3HV Advance order form
Order * After this page, it is enciphered by SSL and you can apply safely.
On this page, please carry out an advance order before putting KHR-3HV on the market.
Please choose 代引き or a bank account transfer about payment.

Although I am planning the end of July about goods sale time, it is about details.
It notifies to our website at any time. Or I will contact you by e-mail.
Please push the confirmation button of the bottom after filling in the quantity of the following goods.
After having you confirm on a check page, an order is sent by e-mail.
* I will limit for a receiver's address in Japan.

Hi all

We have more OFFICIAL information about KHR3HV.

This is official from IXS who represents Kondo and from we get all the Robots:


KHR-3HV : New Kondo Kagaku robot

During its 5th Anniversary (June 13th 2009), Kondo Kagaku has released the brand new KHR-3HV.
A new design, a new frame, much more DOF (dummy servo are included), a new stylish robot that will dramatically change once more the robot hobby market.

== Serial servos ==
Thanks to the use of serial servos, a digital chain is now possible. You can connect up to 17 serial servo motors KRS-2555HV. By using only one cable, it prevents troubles regarding disconnection.

== New frame ==
A design to ease and to smooth the folding of the knee has been enhanced.
Thanks to the new design, the robot can retract and stand up faster from a sitting pose.

== New angles and servo arms ==
Thanks to the strengthened servo arms, the robot is more resistant to shocks and thus
become a real ally during robot competitions.

== Dummy servos ==
Dummy servos have been added to the joints (hips, upper and lower arms). This new faculty will enable the user to add easily new joints and thus to set up new capabilities to the robot.


== Body cover ==
The main frame cover is made out a light ABS plastic. It is easy to change to another body frame. Thanks to the slim body, the user can handle the robot more easily.

== Maintenance ==
The new design of the back pack enables an easier maintenance of the robot. The user will be able to add easily sensors and motors.

== RCB-4 ==
The new micro controller board RCB-4 enables to connect serial servos. It is compatible with ICS3.0 module and a wide range of options parts. The user will be able to control the speed of servos. The input and analog ports enable a wide range of capabilities.
Heart to Heart has also been upgraded with new motions and a new type of
programming.

== Bath tub sole ==
The new design of the sole gives a more secure walk.

== Servo Head ==
The new design of the servo head makes it possible to assemble it naturally to the shoulder. It gives the robot a more intrepid style.

== Battery ==
A nickel battery 10.8V-800mAh has been included. It will take only one hour to charge
it.

Released period: Summer 2009.




FYI the first of batch of KHR3HV has been produced. We at Robosavvy are planning on bringing it in during the next month or so.

We will probably run a pre release campaign for KHR3HV where you'll be able to pre-order it but I'll announce further details in the near future as the first batch produced was made of very few units.

Here is some additional information I collected:

1)
There is a new product - KRI 3 - which is used as an "adapter" to connect KRC-3Ad and KRC-1 radio control units to KHR3HV

2)
There is a new ICS-USB adapter with high speed serial interface to "talk" to the new ICS 3.0 servos (such as the 2552 that comes with KHR 3HV)

3)
KHR3HV comes with 5 dummy servos that can be updated with a 5 servo pack for 5 extra DOF. The location of the servos I believe has been discussed in a post above.

4)
RAS 2 and KRG 4 are also compatible (not sure about KRG 3 - waiting for a confirmation).

5)
The new RCB 4HV controller board seems to have lots and lots of IO.
These are the specs I got for it so far:
Size: 35 x 45 x 12 mm
Weight: 11.8 g
Supply Voltage 9~12V; Internal Voltage: 5V

CPU: M16C26A running at 20Mhz

I/O:
8x SIO ports
10x A/D ports (0~5V)
10x PIO (5V)
1x COMM port (115,2kbps; 625kbps; 1.25Mbps)
1x SW port
2x LED (red, green)

I don't really know for sure the meaning of the abbreviations in the IO, but I believe SIO stand for Serial IO ports to connect servos (I think the servos work in a daisy chain model, since the board is said to support up to 35 servos).
A/D ports are self explanatory;
PIO I don't know what they are...
The 1xCOMM port should be for connecting to the PC
The 1x SW port I don't know what it is.


6)
The new Heart to Heart 4 software includes some nice new features.
The most advertised one is the ability to work in a "Team" model. I don't know exactly what this means but I would believe it has some features for collaboration and maybe a revision control system (I read something like "now you don't need to worry that another team member may overwrite your data").
It is now also compatible with RCB 4 and the ICS 3 serial servos.


Here is a picture comparing the dimensions of the various KHR editions:
