, and five-fingered hands and feet that enable it to stabilize and carry out complex manual tasks, the robot has the ability to bring out a range of tricks, such as standing on its toes, and even carrying out push-ups, pull-ups, and back bends.Intriguingly, the robot even uses a process comparable to sweating to avoid it from overheating, with water tubes threaded through its body collecting heat and dissipating it by venting steam through holes in its aluminium skeleton.The group declares that ultra-lifelike robots could be used to advance the research study of the human body, in particular as an advanced test dummy that might shed light on how the body responds to injuries such as cars and truck crashes.The post Japanese scientists reveal life-like humanoid robots appeared first on The Engineer.
