The Melissa Robot

Technology has changed our lives in so many ways and is advancing at an incredibly rapid rate; 15 years ago no-one could have imagined being able to call someone from a cellphone let alone access services from our phones at the click of a button nowadays. We’re advancing incredibly quickly in this arena and in particular in the field of robotics. Large corporations and the military have been using robots for a very long time for various things for example robots are now used in some of the largest assembly factories in the world and military uses include everything from tactical deployment to humanitarian aid.  Robots are now starting to enter the main stream and one such great robot is the ‘Melissa Robot’.

The Melissa Robot

The “Melissa Robot” designed by Favis, INC is the first biomimetic, or biologically inspired robot to be released on the commercial market. Standing at just over 5 feet and 6 inches tall this anatomically accurate robot is designed to be programmed in a virtual environment using physics simulations and machine learning and will adapt to most environments which configured correctly.  Over time the learner machine  logic is then exported to the actual real world robot to be tested and deployed in real world situations.  This is one incredible robot that is being developed at a rapid rate, so keep your eyes out for more news coming soon.
