Crowdfunded, tendon driven robot mimics human movement

http://www.roboy.org/about.html

Univerity of Zurich’s AI Lab has crowdfunded its first version of an open source, flexible robot.

Roboy, developed by Professor Rolf Pfeifer, has a four foot tall human shape and a set of “muscles” inspired by the human musculoskeletal system. The plastic muscles work together via electrical motors and artificial tendons. Its tendon-driven systems mimic the flexible mechanics of biology, and could result in a new, more natural moving class of robots.

The next iteration of Roboy will be larger and contain more motion sensors.  Its top half will be lighter and more spring-loaded designs will be used to enable it to walk..
