Entertainer android robot. View of Sarcos, an android (human-like) entertainment robot, mimicking the movements of a robot engineer during tests. In the foreground are robot masks. Life-like actions of Sarcos prompt the question: "Will robots one day replace human beings ?" Sarcos was developed at SARCOS Research Corporation in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. He was built to serve as the master of ceremonies or introduction host. The actions of Sarcos are either preprogram- med or run in real time. Mouth movements link with an audio system, while sensors record degrees of body, limb and finger movements.
