Scientists have revealed an ambitious plan to create a humanoid helper robot with artificial muscles - in just nine months.
Engineers at the University of Zurich's Artificial Intelligence Lab hope that 1.2m tall Roboy, designed to look like a child, will eventually help the sick and elderly by acting as a mechanical helper.
To help the robot move, the team are developing radical artificial 'tendons'.
i'm kinda thinking that scientists believe that monkeys would be cheaper, so.....
