ECCEROBOT Mimics Your Skeletal System

eccerobotECCEROBOT is a robot designed to more accurately mimic a human.

For example, it’s tendons are made of kiteline, bones are made of polymorph and the elasticity of muscles is provided by shock cord.

ECCEROBOT was created by a consortium of European robotics labs in the hopes of creating a robot that would interact with the world in the same way we do.

One example of this is ECCEROBOT’s handshake.  It won’t crush your bones.
