Is the Terminator Finally Here?

Skynet is nigh! Skynet is nigh! That might very well be your reaction after seeing this video.

Robotics enthusiasts and experts alike, for years, have been trying to make the most human-like robot possible. It’s obvious what that entails; an accurate and believable replication of the human body’s 206 bones and 640+ muscles.

Cut to the researchers at the Suzumori Endo Research Lab. They’ve fitted a fake skeleton with relative quantities of multifilament artificial muscles that contract and expand when exposed to an electric current. Although the muscles at this point are only strong enough for movement (they can’t pick anything up just yet), the end result is eerily smooth.

Let’s just hope Sarah and John Conner arrive just as we need them to stop the humanoid robot uprising.
