Humanoid robot

A humanoid robot is a robot with its overall appearance based on that of the human body.

In general humanoid robots have a torso with a head, two arms and two legs, although some forms of humanoid robots may model only part of the body, for example, from the waist up.

Some humanoid robots may also have a 'face', with 'eyes' and 'mouth'.

Androids are humanoid robots built to resemble a male human, and Gynoids are humanoid robots built to resemble a human female.
