Eccerobot is built to replicate the human body's structure

While most robots that try to look human have a completely un-human skeleton under their fake skin, the Eccerobot takes the opposite approach. It's designed to have a skeleton, joints and tendons that mimic what we humans have under our skin.

The Eccerobot's skeleton is made from a "springy, bone-like, thermoplastic polymer" rather than steel or another hard metal, and it's got sensors on board that allow it to interact with its environment in a more human-like way. This may just be the future of humanoid robots. Oh… good?
