Humanoid “Swimbot”

In an effort to better understand and model the kinds of movements and forces exerted by olympic swimmers have developed a half scale humanoid robot. The 3D printed bot mimics the arm and leg strokes of a swimmer. The robot can’t swim anywhere near as quickly as a human can. Yet… Humanoid robots are in many ways overly complex and ill suited for a lot of tasks, including swimming. The biggest advantage though is the possibility of one day having humans and robots work side by side in a human environment.
