Myon is a new humanoid robot designed by the industrial design studio, Frackenpohl Poulheim (in Cologne), and developed by the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory at Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany.
The size of a 12 year old, Myon has the special ability to continue to operate even if some of its electronic components are damaged or separated.
It’s also the first humanoid robot in the world that can be disassembled into parts (and put back together) while the parts which make it up continue to work steadily and autonomously (its energy source, the central motor and its neural network remain functioning).
It has a robust “skin” made out of fiberglass. You can see it at the DMY Design Festival Berlin 2010.
