VOCABULARY:

anthropomorphic

Described or thought of as having human form or attributes.

Context:

Anthropomorphic robots working in environments dangerous to human workers will be controlled by humans wearing helmets with 3-D monitors and data-sensing gloves that interact in a virtual space that simulates the real space.

humanoid

A machine that looks and acts like a human.

Context:

Some robot scientists envision the creation of humanoids.

nano-robot

A robot the size of a molecule designed to work inside the human body.

Context:

Future nano-robots may be injected into our bodies to search out and protect us from diseases.

prosthetic

An artificial device to replace a missing part of the body.

Context:

Prosthetics will soon unite body and machine by directly connecting microprocessors in artificial limbs to the central nervous system, enabling the limb to take instructions directly from the brain of the patient.

prototype

The first full-scale model of a new type or design of such things as furniture, machinery, or vehicles.

Context:

In Japan, a prototype of a robotics ski coach teaches new skiers how to slide safely down the beginner slopes.
