Application: For exhibition during the Main Show at EXPO 2005, Aichi Japan. Purpose: The theme of the Toyota Group at the Aichi Expo is "The Dream, Joy and Inspiration of Mobility in the 21st Century". The chief goal of the Toyota Group is the creation of a world in which all people can enjoy the benefits of mobility, and where man, nature and the earth all live in harmony. The title of the main show is "MOVE LIVE", and the theme of the show is "In movement is freedom, in movement is life". These themes and aims are expressed and summarized at the climax of the show in the form of the walking "i-foot" robot. Just as the act of a baby learning to walk may be called the beginning of active living, in the Main Show the 'i-foot' is introduced as a prototype of future vehicles capable of moving in all three dimensions.
