Robots are going to become a lot more sophisticated in the upcoming years. We have already covered plenty of advanced robots here. The iCub happens to be a humanoid robot capable of standing balanced on one foot while interacting with humans. The contact force/torque at the floor is controlled to maintain the equilibrium. As you can see in the below video, the robot can move without compromising its stability:
The iCub also features gaze stabilization and whole body distributed skin sensors. This exciting robot was developed by the researchers at the Italian Institute of Technology. These features are going to be very helpful when robots make their way into our homes.
