Mybot is a humanoid robot with memory


Mybot is a humanoid robot capable of handling information, developed by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology. Mybot has memory, can identify the shapes of some objects and can learn to do housework.

Mybot is under development and will be used in the service sector in the future.


Developed by the Korea Institute of Science and Technology, Pibot can fly. It will be used in high-risk work environments, such as during rescues after a disaster occurs.

YuMi -- a Robot for You and Me


Developed by ABB Engineering Shanghai, YuMi is short for “you and me,” which is meant to imply the robot was created to work well with humans. YuMi was designed to collaborate side-by-side, with human workers in a normal manufacturing environment. One of YuMi’s features is its “intrinsically safe” rating.

YuMi has been used as an assistant in the assembly of electronic products including smartphones and tablets.


Developed by Carnegie Mellon University, the robot Snake Monster with six legs looks more like an insect than a snake.

It can be used in exploration, disaster relief and medical care. 


RoboBee is a tiny robot capable of tethered flight, developed by a robotics research team at Harvard University. To achieve flight, they created artificial muscles capable of beating the wings 120 times per second. The goal of the RoboBee project is to make a fully autonomous swarm of flying robots for applications such as search and rescue and artificial pollination. The 3-centimeter wingspan of the RoboBee makes it the smallest man-made device modeled on an insect to achieve flight.
