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, ; who can do sit-ups, push-ups, and back .

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/pull commands can much like whatever flab resides where our muscles should be.

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

It’s flexible to , in fact 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 robot.
