        Making a Humanoid Robot

        In this video excerpt from NOVA scienceNOW, learn about some of the crucial components of DARwin-OP, a humanoid robot that walks on two legs. The act of walking involves senses (such as vision, balance, and touch) as well as movement. Correspondent and New York Times technology columnist David Pogue explores how the creators of DARwin-OP took inspiration from humans to make the robot, using metal, microchips, a webcam, sensors, and actuators.
