ECCEROBOT (Embodied Cognition in a Compliantly Engineered Robot), built by Professor Owen Holland of the University of Sussex is the world's first Robot with artificial human bones, muscles and tendons. The robot has a skeletal structure and movements that can mimic the human body. The internal structure is created by using thermoplastic polymer for bones, screwdriver motors and shock cord for muscle, and kiteline for tendons. With the current impressive results, scientists are hopeful towards incorporating human like cognitive features in ECCEROBOT.
