There are 5 robots in all, most of which have different movement systems. The 5 robots are: Version 1 (bipedal robot), Version 2 (Segway-like wheels), Version 3 (Segway-like wheels), Version 4 (unique wire system) and the i-Foot (mountable with 2 legs).[1][2] In July 2009, Toyota released a video of the running and standing skills of their partner robot.
