The technology to make human skin and muscle is there, now there needs to be a robot to "grow" it on to make the skin and tendons work properly when transplanted on humans. Perhaps Oxford researchers have the answer?



Scientists have published a paper in the Journal Science Robotics that humanoid robots could help create muscle and tendons grafts that actually work. Their findings also claim the technology is already in place to start harvesting muscles and tissue on human like machines.


Scientists have already created fleshy “bio-bots” made of living cells which can wriggle and walk.

And now two University of Oxford biomedical researchers claim that humanoid robots could help create muscle and tendon grafts that actually work.

Their findings, published in journal Science Robotics, claim that the technology is already in place to start harvesting muscles and tissue on human-like machines.

Looks like they will need to put the tissue and skin on a real robot that mimics the human structure and movements. In comes the Kenshiro Robot, and may I add it is an evil ass looking robot.


But traditional tissue growth methods “fail to mimic the real mechanical environment for cells” which is necessary to ensure they are robust enough to work with human joints, claim Pierre-Alexis Mouthuy and Andrew Carr.

Instead, we need a robot with “structures, dimensions, and mechanics similar to those of the human body”.

The “humanoid-bioreactor system” could look similar to the Kenshiro Robot, made by the University of Tokyo.

Well, that's another 2 weeks of night terrors for me.

The research seems all well and good given it's goals, but couldn't they make it less evil looking? Christ.

This does make me think as well that one day in the not too distant future they'll be robots walking around and you won't even be able to tell the difference except on close inspection. Scary thought.

That's what I was thinking.



Things start out as good intentions, but somewhere along the line things can go wrong. All the robot movies don't help. LOL

What about dogs, cats, squirrels?

If they can mimic these, imagine the info that can be gathered and the destruction that can be brought.

What is the ultimate destination of Man ? Complete and utter destruction of every animate object in life ? Is it the final throws of collapse. Environmental and biological... especially biological. Decades from now they might comment on GMO. And might this quest to 'Create' lead to annihilation of man and nearly every living thing. Superbugs, plagues, pandemics preying on compromised immune systems. There's much to think about suggesting this abomination

Perhaps the new lords will think man of no use, a liability.

as long as they do not power themselves on organics it could be ok. Unless we want a zero dawn scenario to happen where we all die and have to be recreated by a machine to repopulate.

ALso it be better if the machines had artificial muscles instead.

The theory exist that what the masses are exposed to now may be 50+ years behind actual existing technologies?
Have heard the Conspiracy Theories about some wild engagements of aliens taking over with clones...
Have not however heard any postulations about alien bots hacking the type 0 civilizations. To guide or control indoctrinate them?

A necessary step in the progess toward modular human limb replacement's and organ replacement's with fully integrated artificial prosthetic's, make the patient feel it is part of them and no longer having to unstrap there leg or arm as it will be part of them.

This is fantastic progress but I am more concerned about how the military will abuse and implement this technology, real terminator's using ceramic rather than metal skeleton's to by pass metal detection, human's even having there body's taken and then being put back with an artificial being inside them to act as spy's.

I find this concerning too..


An echoborg is composed of a human whose words (and potentially motor actions) are entirely or partially determined by a computer program. Echoborgs constitute a methodological trade-off inverse to that of the tele-operated paradigm discussed above, as they allow the possibility of studying social interactions with artificial agents that have truly human interfaces. The unique affordances of echoborgs can complement those of tele-operated and fully-autonomous androids and contribute to our understanding of the social psychological dynamics of human–agent interaction...



To be technical, Sophia is an “echoborg” – a living, breathing person who has temporarily given themselves over to become a robot’s mouthpiece. Whatever she says originated in a chatbot across the internet, and is then fed to her through a small earpiece BBC


how many of you are echoborgs?

*looks at you suspiciously*

If we are 50 years behind the "real" tech, is this already the case?

They should be putting that research to burn victims and prosthetics.

Concerning... yes. I can't help but focus on the choice of titles in the last sentence.

"Human- AGENT Interactions" ?!?!?!...

WTH is this The Matrix?!

Please,please please.... Do not make them look like Agent Smith! That guy is strange looking and it creeps me out. It's something about his mouth and eyes. I'm going HAM if I start seeing that dude everywhere.

Damn Human Agent interactions my ass! What goes through these peoples minds does not surprise me at all, it's what actually makes it past the filters into our reality and is thought of as a good idea...

When the end actually does come don't be surprised if you've seen it in a movie before.

This is why in every zombie apocalypse movie scenario they insist that you must shoot all zombies in the head....and of course why all the FEMA camps have guillotines.....I'm kidding, right?

Wow. Just wow. But we have to come up with a different name. “Humanoid-bioreactor system” is somewhat lacking.

Yes. Check out what's happening with prosthetics and skin grafts.
