The Beijing Institute of Technology, funded by CMST (Chinese Ministry of Science & Technology), have developed at least three versions of the BHR (Beijing Humanoid Robot). The researchers hope the humanoid robots will be able to tackle hazardous work environments in the future. While the first robot (BHR-1) wasn’t highly publicized, its successor BHR-2 (nicknamed Huitong) unveiled in 2005 is 158cm (5′1″) tall, weighs 76kg (167 lbs), and has 32 degrees of freedom.
