The Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), led by professor Oh Jun-ho, researched and developed HUBO in the relatively short time of only five years. Research began in 2000 and the fist prototype KHR-1 was developed without a head or arms by 2003, followed by KHR-2 in 2004. HUBO, debuted in January of 2005 with voice recognition and synthesis faculties, as well as sophisticated vision in which its two eyes move independently of one another.

At the 2005 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) convention a HUBO robot with Albert Einstein?s head stole the show and demonstrated KAIST?s advanced synthetic skin technology.
