Video: Meet ECCEROBOT, The Humanoid Robot With Muscles And Tendons. Cylons Nod.
All of this has happened before, and there’s a good fucking chance it’ll happen again. Thank you, Matrix, Mass Effect, and Battlestar Galactica for teaching me that. We’re not building robots with muscles and tendons. Jesus Christ, what are we doing.
We frequently see bits and pieces of lifelike robotics– robotic mouths, eyes, fingers, toes etc., each that mimic a part of the human body very well, but ECCEROBOT is an ambitious project from the University of Sussex that puts much of that together. The bot has bones, muscles and tendons that all work in harmony like a human body. It’s one more small step towards building a lifelike android.
