Meet Roboy, Your New Best Friend
It’s the latest in robotics, and–er–he, will do everyday humanoid tasks.
The research team is developing radical artificial ‘tendons’ to help the robot move, the ‘Daily Mail’ reported. They have already signed up 15 project partners and over 40 engineers, and hope to fund the project using a combination of commercial partners and crowd-funding.
Researchers hope Roboy will become a blueprint for ‘service robots’ that work alongside humans. “Service robots are machines that are, to a certain extent, able to execute services independently for the convenience of human beings. Since they share their ‘living space’ with people, user-friendliness and safety are of great importance,” researchers said.
