    A sex robot with super strength… Think I’ll pass. Didn’t we all learn from Wolowitz?

  2. ken anthony:

    Sex assassins that can pop your skull like a pimple. What could go wrong?

  3. McGehee:

    Am I the only one reminded of Larry Niven’s “Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex”?

  4. Mike E:

    Overrated; the super-strength is based on ultra-light test articles. Ants have super-strength, too. Everything I read makes it look likely it’ll be subject to square/cube scaling like other similar actuators.

  5. ken anthony:

    Hydraulics can be very strong in small packages.

  6. Mike E:

    Well, yeah, this is essentially a cunning repackaging of hydraulics with a flexible chassis in a bag rather than a piston. Potentially a useful technique, but not revolutionary.

    Except when the robots get angry.
