Robots in real life are quickly catching up to the fantasies reflected on the big screen like Kenshiro, which is a prototype for humanoid cyborgs that have skeletons and muscles like a human being.

Created by the University of Tokyo, the Kenshiro is meant to emulate the body and functions of a 12-year-old boy. Designed with artificial bone structure made of aluminum and lab-produced muscle imitators, the humanoid cyborgs are able to mimic various humanistic actions such as rotating shoulders, bending knees and elbows, jumping jacks and stretches, leaning forwards and backwards as well as many other motions that consist of muscle contraction and expansion.

Despite the life-like capabilities of this machine, researchers have yet to achieve humanistic speed and precision with Kenshiro, though they have definitely have come a far way.
