Female Space RobotRobots are usually males or genderless machines, so it’s pretty interesting when researchers come up with a robot that resembles a human female. Well, the folks over at the Robotics Innovation Center at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence and the Robotics Group at the University of Bremen recently came up with a robot with a female form named AILA. It features a female body figure, a head molded in the shape of a modern female hairstyle, and large, dark eyes resembling an anime character.

Internally, AILA is no different from a “male” robot but it does feature arms that mimic a human operator’s arm and hand movements, and can learn how to push buttons or flip switches on its own. No reason was given to why AILA was designed to resemble a female, but I guess it will provide some diversity to the all-male crew on future space exploration missions.
