Reuters brings to attention the Pibot, a humanoid robot developed by researchers at South Korea's Advanced Institute of Science and Technology. The robot is designed to immediately automate any type of aircrafty, allowing it to operate in areas where it would be otherwise dangerous for a human pilot.

"When Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant got damaged by earthquake in 2011, there was a helicopter which was trying to spray extinguishing agents, but it couldn't get close to the site because of radiation hazard." Shim says if Pibot was at the controls that day ---- radiation wouldn't have been an issue.
