A robot with human reflexes?! WOW! This robot is designed to do jobs and missions too dangerous to be done by a human. Its infrastructure is actually very interesting, the goal of the creator was to build a robot with the brain of human meaning it having the ability to learn and make decisions. And what they did was attach a machine to one of the creators and they had the robot basically perfectly mirror what he was doing so that it could learn. The robot has many wires connected to its limbs as the hardest part of making a human like robot is keeping it balanced, and minimize the chance of a malfunction. It relates to engineering in many ways such as the construction of the robot. It is extremely difficult to build a robot with human reflexes, you first of all 100% need planning and organization, you also need to have Sustained Attention and lastly Task Initiation. It also relates to engineering in by the tools needed to create it. So many tools were needed and different materials like metal a lot of wiring leather, similar to what is needed in engineering.
