How close are robots to actually becoming more human than humans? There's robots that look like us now. We're training them to think like us. And some can even mimic us.\

Stacy Shevlin: Welcome to BotBeat, we are in the hunt for the coolest, cutest, and creepiest robots out there, lets a do this. Soon the day will come when robots are so similar to humans that will be almost impossible to tell them apart. May be that day has come. Perhaps it has arrived. Let's take a look at some amazing robots, very human like qualities. Stacy Shevlin: Welcome to handsome robotics, one of the leaders in creating robots that look just like as humans. These super wheel realistic robots are controlled by a character engine. Which is artificial intelligent software, the soft ware integrates features such as computer vision, facial deduction and speech recognition. Handsome robotics makes many different versions, of its human life or humanoid tripods there is humanoids based on famous historical figures. My name is Albert Einstein I'm a physicist. But if you are looking for something like a little more age, there is the fun Crocker robot, Joy Kayos. Joy Kayos: I'm having a very pleasant day. Stacy Shevlin: And represent the ladies there is Eva these robots are capable of mimicking human emotion, eye contact, facial expression as well as naturalistic conversation. Joy Kayos: I'm thinking creative I mean go on. Stacy Shevlin: And how do these robots come to look so human, well, if all in a material called robot. Frubber is a polymer that looks and feels more like real skin in previous materials. Frubber has the potential to be used impress statics application, such as facial reconstruction the ultimate fall of handsome robotics as what these robots to involve into socially intelligent beings capable of emotions. Not all robots strive to be more human by looking, like humans some robots take on human characteristics in another ways. These robots are part of this "swarm" project. Each robot is called scarab, they don't look anything like humans. But they start to build a community where they can communicate with each other, without human interference. If this is in a say fine urge dreams come true. I don't know what is. Jonathan Fink: So this is the very development for platform that we use for doing lots of different types of experiments. Stacy Shevlin: The robots are assigned to task, and they all were together to accomplish that goal. In this case they are to move this object to a defined location. Jonathan Fink: This is the point where the robots are actually reach can senses that they can start manipulating the objects and the entire transport load, where they are working on just putting the object diagonally across the room here. Stacy Shevlin: Each robots moves autonomously, communicating with their neighbor on how to best accomplish the goal. They communicate through a wireless network, if one of the robot should run a ground and get tripped up on the wall the other robots adapt completing the task with one last robot. Jonathan Fink: I suppose this we used in palate handling type of scenario in manufacturing things like that, now most of these are the preset radical things that we are working on right now. Stacy Shevlin: Though this robot is doing serious work, how can you not love a guy which such a sweet taste and foot wear? The whole Dexter and its good pair Monty, Dexter is different from other walking or by bipedal robots, in that is joints are meant to be totally human like. They are controlled by arizonae that are springing and flexible like human muscle, because of the way these joints are designed. He can walk over a variety of surfaces absorbing the impact. Dexter is a rare robot that can jump not too high, but he can jump may be steps above and then there is Monty he is all about the hand, he was designed with hands that emulate the way human hands work. He has wheels for legs but trying to push him around is not recommended. His hands are as strongest as average human hand and have up to 40 pounds of crushing Forbes the ultimate plan is to create one robot with the legs Dexter and the hands of
