Today's robots are nothing short of astonishing. Those coming in the not-too-distant future are simply revolutionary and becoming eerily like us.
What does it take to make a humanoid robot - a robot that can do anything we can but without the benefit of a human brain? How close are scientists to replicating some of the particularly challenging human characteristics, such as fingers and toes? Why are we even attempting to create humanoids in the first place?
Robots 3D answers these questions and more as it showcases the latest developments – both successes and failures – of robotics around the world. Robot "actor" RoboThespian will introduce you to CHIMP, ATLAS, PR-2, Herb the Butler, ICUB and others as he takes you on an amazing tour of what's going on in robotics labs around the world.
