The collection of human/animal inspired robots, Biomimetic Robots, listed by Discovery.com recently, shows something stunning.
The butterfly kite-looking, ehh, thing, is actually a tricky spy called the "Morphing Micro Air and Land Vehicle" which can fly into hostile areas for data collection. After all, who’s gonna be suspicious of something as adorable as that?
And the little creepy baby doll, called the iCub, is not a toy nor a babysitter (we wish it was!); in fact, it’s a serious device for toddler behavior study and is developed by a bunch of scientists in Europe, including the EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology).
The gallery includes pieces by Technovelgy.com.
