Xiaomi has said that the CyberOne has been fitted with advanced arms and legs that support bipedal-motion posture balancing. The company has also claimed that the humanoid has a high emotional quotient, can detect human emotions, and has advanced vision capabilities.

CyberOne features two microphones and two cameras, allowing it to hear and see in three dimensions. It uses microphones to analyze human vocal expressions and can detect 45 different emotions.

The CyberOne weighs 52 kg and has a height of 5 feet 8 inches (177 cm). It can walk at a speed of 3.6 km per hour and grip objects while it walks.

It is to be noted that CyberOne is still in development and may take a long time before it is ready for commercial launch. Each unit of CyberOne can cost between CNY 600,000 to CNY 700,000 (approx. ₹71 lakh to ₹82.8 lakh). The company will have to significantly reduce the price if it plans on building it on a large scale.

The CyberOne is still in the early stages of development and cannot be compared to other humanoid robots, such as the Atlas from Boston Dynamics. Boston Dynamics worked on Atlas for over 25 years and continues to develop it.
