Robots. They just look like… robots. Well, not the Kenshiro Robot. Modeled after an average Japanese preteen who stands at 1.58m and weighs 50kg, the Kenshiro comes with sinewy life-like muscles and bones. It doesn’t quite move like Jagger, to be sure, but from the test video — and barring some laughable bits at 0:50 and 0:58 — it looks like it’s rolling like a stone towards something uncannily human.
