This is the first question in a series that I have (that follows the human organ systems). This question deals specifically with the use of the muscular and skeletal systems in a robot. Since they work so cooperatively, I'll ask them together.
I'm imagining soft-SF answers (not technical... unless it's 100% impossible).
Say bones and muscle tissue can be fabricated/ grown using stem cells. Could they be "transplanted" into a working humanoid-robot with an artificial intelligence similar to the human brain?
If so, then the robot would need to provide, through a system similar to the circulatory system (which, for all intents and purposes, we will assume is covered/ can be emulated by tubes and wires), energy and nutrients to each cell to sustain them.
I'm not trying to say that this would become a fully sustainable species of hybrid human/ robots, but it's more of a teaching tool for the robot to understand the, in this case, limits of the human skeletal/ muscular systems.
I do plan on asking about each of the major body systems as time goes on, so if you are free for some time and want to go into greater depth about any other system and how it could/ not work and why, that's your prerogative.
Don't penalize me for offering, as my question just tackles the m/s systems, but it's pretty obvious that I'll be covering each eventually, so if you have an idea and want to roll with it across other systems, feel free.
