A project from South Korea
"3D printing is a rare technology to come across when looking at professional-grade robotic research, as those often focused on the interior and the abilities of the robot (such as accurately copying humanoid movement, facial recognition technology, etc…). Not only does that mean that its aesthetics are underappreciated, but it also tends to require a heavy and solid metal container capable of supporting all that weight and hardware.
But this is exactly what makes the DyRos Robot, which has just been presented at the Humanoids 2014 Conference in Madrid, Spain, so special. Unlike its many competitors, this South Korean creation features both an impressive engineering interior, as well as a flashy exterior. Unsurprisingly, it heavily relied on 3D printing to achieve success in that latter category."
