Advanced humanoid Roboy to be ‘born’ in nine months

ACM News 28/12/2012

University of Zurich researchers are developing Roboy, a tendon-driven robot modeled on human beings that will be one of the most advanced humanoid robots ever created. Roboy will be a service robot, meaning it will execute services independently for the convenience of humans. The Roboy project involves the participation of 15 partners and more than 40 engineers and scientists. Roboy’s tendon-based body will help it move almost as smoothly as a human, and the robot will be covered with soft skin, making interacting with it safer and more pleasant. Caring for the aging human population will be the target market for service roots such as Roboy, as older people want to be as autonomous as possible, according to roboticists. They also note that the user-friendliness and safety of service robots are paramount, since the machines will be sharing their living space with people. The University of Zurich researchers set the goal of building Roboy in nine months, with a birthday of March 8, 2013. The project is a grassroots endeavor funded via crowdfunding.

  1. A homemade magnetic motor can provide you with a limitless amount of low cost electrical energy.
    These magnetic motors can be made by utilizing
    a small number of parts that you can purchase at a local hardware
    store.The idea of free energy did not start with Nikola Tesla,
    but it certainly gained a lot of ground with his research.
    If you want to put together your own version of one of these devices, keep reading.

    Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon every day.
    It will always be interesting to read through content from other
    writers and practice something from their websites.
