It is very cool. This is one of the reasons why i feel that when we get the technology (thats also economically decent) then we can create a robot
that can move just as well as us, without the boxy "robotic" movements, they do now, due to the lack of flexibility we have. Our bodies are designed
so intricately its really mind blowing. We have so many muscles that all have a purpose, and some move together to help each other out. Along with the
muscles, we have cartilage that helps glide our bones over each other smoothly, with the assistance of tendons and ligaments to act as 'duct tape'
to hold everything together. Once we can create a robot with all that delicacy and intricacy, running small bands of elastic fibers acting as muscle
fibers, and a silky gel type that retains a wet feeling for cartilage, etc. then we can create a truly remarkable moving robot that can run, jump,
