Today's robots are nothing short of astonishing. Those coming in the not-too-distant future are simply revolutionary - and they are becoming eerily like us. What does it take to make a humanoid robot - a robot that can do anything we can do without the benefit of a human brain? How close are scientists to replicating some of the particularly challenging human characteristics? Why are we attempting to create humanoids in the first place? ROBOTS answers these questions and more as it showcases the latest developments - successes and failures - of robotics around the world. ROBOTS is a fascinating and fun look at what makes us human, how far machines can really go to look and act like us, and how humanoids are already changing our world.
