London, Sept 17 (ANI): Boffins have developed an amazing skeleton robot that moves just like humans.

The creation is known as an “anthropomimetic robot”.

Using human anatomy as a blueprint, scientists have replicated tendons using kite lines.

And used elastic bands to mimic the bounce of a muscles, reports The Sun.

The University of Sussex with help of institutions across Europe developed the stunning invention - called the Eccerobot.

Owen Holland, who is leading the Eccerobot project, said: “We want to develop these ideas into a new kind of anthropomimetic robot which can deal with and respond to the world in ways closer to the ways that humans do.”

The project team believe the Eccerobot - which could also be fitted with artificial intelligence - could be the most life-like humanoid so far. (ANI)
