Kojiro robot previews new wave of organic-movement androids

Japan's latest entry into the race to make humanoid robots a mainstream reality is the new Kojiro robot developed by researchers at Tokyo University's JSK Robotics Laboratory. Made of lightweight, flexible materials, the goal of team leader Professor Nakanishi was to create a robot that would be more suited, and safe, for a household environment.

Employing a system of around 100 tendon-like components, Kojiro is also seen as the future of robots with more natural movements. You can see video of the Kojiro robot in action here.
