Primitive Life Form Organic Robots

Professor/computer graphic artist Yoichiro Kawaguchi and his team from the University of Tokyo create robots that they feel imitate primitive life forms. They are doing this to explore how artificial life can "survive in a world governed by the law of the jungle." They will be giving the "Organics" a basic reflex system, eyes that can recognize and track objects, and biomimetric actuators and tentacles will be added to help them move a la centipedes. The team envisions them to be completed in about 2 years. In the meantime, 3D models are on display at the Yushima Seido-shrine until February 8.
