Submission + - Roboy Team Aims to Build Robot Toddler in Nine Months (gizmag.com) 1

Zothecula writes: If robots are going to be part of our everyday lives, they’ll need to fit into our homes rather than the factory floor. Few people would be comfortable living with a metal spider on tank treads, so the University of Zurich’s Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (AI Lab) is building a robot toddler called “Roboy.” Using “soft robotics” technology that mimics the human body, the 1.2 meter (3 ft, 11 in) tall humanoid robot is part of an effort to make robots that people are more comfortable with in day-to-day situations.

Almost anything derogatory you could say about today's software design would be accurate. -- K.E. Iverson
