Entertainer android robot. View of Sarcos, an android (human-like) entertainment robot, playing seven-card-stud poker with a group of robot engineers. His actions 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 preprogrammed or run in real time. Mouth movements link with an audio system, while sensors record degrees of body, limb and finger movements. His abilities do not yet extend to card playing.
