We've seen robots that can walk like an ape and run like a cheetah, robots that can mix a perfect martini, help the disabled, or drive you to the store. Someday robots could even replace soldiers on the battlefield.
Now, a lab in Britain is showing off one of the most lifelike humanoid robots yet. Technically, it's a "Robothespian," but they call him Reginald for short.
They envision Robothespians like Reginald being put to work at store checkout counters or in airports or sports stadiums.
Each one costs about $90,000, and developers are working on new capabilities for the next generation.
Watch the video above to see Reginald in action.
