With technological advances moving so quickly today, even the most conscientious technical savvy person is having a difficult time keeping up. From the latest development in the automobile industry to the recent advances in mobile technology, there is so much happening across the globe. Since developers all over the world are participating in open source projects, the technology has been booming. In specific, the technical advances in the humanoid robotic world has become astounding.
With this said, since DARPA’s (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is taking a leading role in many of the most innovative technologies, there has been a lot done toward developing humanoid robotics. Some of which have been built to performing both routine tasks and those that will save many lives in the future. Therefore, people can expect to see more about humanoid robots as advancements in technology progresses. Similar to the human body features (1 head, 2 arms, 2 legs, a body, feet, toes and the like), these robots are being engineered to perform a wide variety of different essential and critical tasks. For instance, one the latest of the tasks that these humanoid robots were expected to perform involved assisting with shutting down a major plant overseas.
