Since the project started in the summer of 2012, Roboy's development progressed extremely well. The torso of the 1.30 m robot was assembled and the two arms were finished and able to move; then Roboy received a new face. This friendly face is projected onto the head of the robot with a miniature projector and gives him a wide range of facial expressions. Roboy is also able to recognize faces that he has learned beforehand. The humanoid is a so-called “soft robot” – a further development of “Ecce”, his famous counterpart. Roboy has been designed as a humanoid tendon-controlled robot (in “normal robots”, the motors are in the joints); this will enable him to move almost as elegantly as a human.
