Robots are getting more and more intelligent day by day as a result of developments in science and technology. Like humans , robots do evolve as we continue to innovate in robotics. The robot named “Mahoro” seen in the above video is developed by Yaskawa and Japan’s National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST).

The robot’s arms have seven joints letting it to perform human operations easily and accurately. This keeps the humans away from bio-hazards while testing harmful diseases at the pharmaceutical labs. This robot can be taught with the help of a virtual lab bench created with CAD software. Tools can be arranged to make the robot to perform its work at its maximum speed.
