This 'self-guided' robot is about as sentient as a wind chime
Japan's National Science Museum unveiled a new exhibit last month: a creepy-looking robot that's powered by 42 pneumatic actuators and its own neural network. According to a report from Engadget, this neural net (which is modeled, in a very broad sense, after the brain's own system of neurons) is programmed to respond to its environment — with the robot's movements and strange vocalizations reacting to information from sensors detecting movement, temperature, and humidity.
