for space exploration studies:

The spine works alongside other components to create a complex biomechanical system capable of traversing obstacles that would defeat wheeled vehicles – the robot even shuffles to balance itself on moving surfaces, shifting its centre of gravity as the ground tilts beneath it.

The iStruct “robot ape” is under test as a potential space explorer at the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) – and is just one of several “biologically inspired” robot explorers under test, including robot insects.

    Give the robot to Dawkins and with his famous computer program “weasel” he will be able to mutate by chance the program of the monkey in a few hours in orfer the animal jumps from a tree to another. Perhaps if Dr. Liddle helps him the evolution could be in minutes
