CB2: New robot that simulates human senses

Creation of RobotJapan – A ‘pasty’-looking child was the center of everyone’s attention. He giggled, made faces and rolled around on the ground while barking words. None of this would have been remarkable if CB2, as he is called, weren’t a robot.

His biomimetic body includes numerous actuators to replicate muscles and sensors to simulate senses and touching, with tiny cameras for eyes.

Like a child, when CB2 stands, he needs the help of an adult as his little legs wobble. His creators are hoping that CB2 will help children develop human relation skills; such as recognizing objects, learning languages and interacting with other people.

Here is a video showing the CB2 abilities( sorry but its in Japanese 🙂
