Robots Adopt Human-Like Anatomy

Despite decades of development, robots have remained essentially programmable industrial machines full of motors, gears, wheels, and pulleys. While that’s an effective approach to building industrial robotics, it greatly handicaps a robot’s ability to reliably function in a world designed for bipedal primates with opposable thumbs and fingers. However, recent breakthroughs in computing and materials science are paving the way for truly human-like robots. How is this technology evolving? What are the implications? How can you profit? We’ll show you.
