Newest Humanoid Robot ‘Kengoro’, who can do Sit-ups, Push-ups, Back Extensions

In Science Robotics, the University of Tokyo researchers showed off their newest humanoid robot, Kengoro; who can do sit-ups, push-ups, and back extensions.

Kengoro is nothing without a series of 116 actuators. The actuators are placed inside its frame in an attempt to mirror the human body, and through push/ commands can contract much like whatever flab resides where our should be.

These actuators, though, produce heat. To counter increasing temperatures, researchers added a water cooling system to his porous aluminum frame. Water circulates to cool the actuators and when it does, Kengoro “sweats,” much like a human. This sweat, however, isn’t an attempt to cool the body, but escaping water vapor from the cooling system.

It’s flexible to boot, in Kengoro’s about six times as flexible as the average human. We can only hope Kengoro doesn’t take up Crossfit next. That would be an intolerable robot.
