It looks like a stripped-down version of Star Wars character C-3PO. But this robot is science fact not fiction - and one of the most advanced in the world. Ecci, as it has been named, is the first ever robot to have 'muscles' and 'tendons', as well as the 'bones' they help move. All made of a specially developed plastic. And most advanced of all, it also has a brain with the ability to correct its mistakes - a trait previously only seen in humans.
Developed by a team of scientists at the University of Zurich, Ecci, is short for Eccerobot. Ecce in Latin means Lo or Behold. The robot uses a series of electric motors to move the joints the tendons are connected to. And a computer built into the brain of Ecci allows him to learn from his mistakes.
