RoboThespian, designed by Engineered Arts Limited, is a life-sized humanoid robot designed for human interaction in a public place that can be used for multiple purposes from education to pure entertainment. The integration of 85 iglidur bearings, from igus, allow for the smooth human-like movements to flow throughout the body from head to toe. This contributes to a longer life for RoboThespians around the world. The low friction, small size and lightweight iglidur bearings complement the anodised aerospace grade aluminium components used throughout RoboThespian.
