Scientists Are Building Humanoid Robots Using Skin Grafts

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, robotics/AI

  • Scientists are eager to begin using humanoid robots as a means to test medical technology that could help us better understand how muscles and tendons work.
  • By overlaying lab-engineered tissue onto mechanical robot skeletons, scientists would essentially be creating part-human, part-robot test subjects.

With all the advances being made in robotics in terms of capabilities, it was only a matter of time before researchers took it one step further, making robots look more human. That’s what a pair of biomedical researchers at the University of Oxford are hoping to do, anyway.
