Japanese Researchers Develop Humanoid Robots that ‘Sweat’

(WallStreetPit) A trio of roboticists at the University of Tokyo have designed two of the most advanced humanoid robots with musculoskeletal structures and extreme flexibility. The robots, named Kengoro and Kenshiro, can engage in a number of impressive human-like actions like sit-ups, push-ups, and even stretches. However, the most surprising aspect is their ability to exercise and even break a sweat.
“Our intent is to design a humanoid based on human systems— including the musculoskeletal structure, sensory nervous system, and methods of information processing in the brain—to support science-oriented goals, such as gaining a deeper understanding of the internal mechanisms of humans,” the researchers explain.
