This Robot Relies on Human Reflexes For Balance

Contrary to what science fiction predicted robotics in 2019 would be like, robots are nowhere near being autonomous yet (although they are able to do some pretty cool things). It's taken researchers a long time to get robots to be able to walk like humans - so getting them to respond to different environments with fast reflexes is even further away than our hopeful ancestors imagined. But these researchers are looking at things in a different way, and a robot that can walk and balance like a human may be closer than we thought it was.

Scientists Reveal What Ancient Relative of Humans Looked Like

What do you, me and every other person on Earth have in common? I won't make you guess, because we all have a lot more in common than we think we do. No matter how different we might seem from each other, we're all part of the same species: homo sapiens. And that means that we all have ancestors in common. We know what Neanderthals look like, but it's a different story for their recently discovered cousin, the Denisovans. Some scientists have just made a pretty good guess about what the Denisovans looked like.
