Japan creates creepy robot boy with aluminum bones, 160 muscles12/13/2012
Keeping your eyes peeled for robot overlords swooping in to destroy the human race? Might want to hone in on 12-year-old boys. Researchers at the University of Tokyo have unveiled "Kenshiro," a creepily humanesque robot that moves just like a kid — well, sort of. The 5-foot-two-inch, 110-pound humanoid has aluminum bones and 160 pulleylike muscles. OK, so maybe the headless science project decked out in Adidas doesn't look too threatening in this video, but once they perfect the brain, we could be in real trouble. Thanks, Japan. Now we're totally creeped out. [Source]
