A fully 3D printed Humanoid. A group of French researchers were able to cut costs by a third utilizing the latest 3D tech.It has an articulated spine with five motors – almost unheard of in robots of this size. The spine not only allows Poppy to move more naturally, but helps to balance the robot by adjusting its posture. The added flexibility also helps when physically interacting with the robot, such as guiding it by its hands, which is currently required to help the robot walk.
