DailyDirt: Robots Mimicking Humans

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Most useful robots look nothing like their human creators. But since humans and robots are going to need to work together, it might help to make robots more friendly-looking. So it's not too surprising to find a bunch of robot projects developing machines that have human-like appearances and behaviors. Here are just a few interesting links on these humanoid bots. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    Dr. Hikari has given us emotions

    We now laugh, and get mad, and worry like humans do. Is that not the defining condition of humanity?

    and the hugging robot?

    Nice selection of creepy robots. I have also seen an article the other day on a robot that could hug you back when you hug it. You could put the lovotic robot on the head to get the love and the physical contact...
