Roboy Junior is probably the most human robot in the world. He has a human-like skeleton, muscle structure, and incredibly cute looks. Also, he is a soft robot research platform for studying the coordination of muscles, a messenger of a new generation of robots that could share our living space with us, and the first anthropomimetic robot in the Human Brain Project (HBP).
While most robots in the world have motors in the joints, Roboy uses muscles and tendons as humans do. This not only makes his motions very smooth and natural, it makes him safe to interact with, but also the perfect robot for the HBP. Because when you test theories about how the brain controls a body, you will need a body that works like a human body.
Mobility, communication and Virtual Reality (VR) are the ongoing fields of improvement that the team is working on.
