Born from the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory at Humboldt University in Berlin, the Myon humanoid robot could represent the future of robot construction. That future? Modular body parts that can be changed on the fly.
Equipped with a large, cyclops-like eyepiece, and a chest-mounted touchscreen control panel, the robot can remain functional even as its various body parts are removed. This kind of robot dynamic could prove important to future-proofing robots working in damage-prone environments. Also, if your rescue robot gets its armed chopped off, it'll still be able to get the job done — plus you can just hook on another when it gets back to base.
