Robots can be used in a wide range of uses from creating art and entertainment, to making weapons and vehicles.
But for many, the biggest use is that they help protect the human beings in their lives.
The Wooden Robots project, which started with a robotic drawing by the Dutch artist Pieter van de Kamp, has grown into a worldwide effort to draw human-like humanoid robots.
The robots are made from wood and can be programmed to perform tasks, like picking up trash, or cleaning houses.
It’s the next step in the evolution of the Woodie Robot, an interactive robot developed by the company Dassault.
“The robot can be a human being, it can be the owner of a car, or even the driver of a plane,” said Peter van der Meer, CEO of Woodie.
“It can do a lot of different things.”
The Woodie Robots project is in the midst of a $30 million campaign to raise money to build the robots.
This comes after the Woody robots won the prestigious International Robotics Competition, which included a $20,000 prize.
The project is funded by a $100,000 donation from Dutch artist Peter van de Lamp.
The Dutch artist says he has been inspired by his own struggles with addiction, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.
“There are so many ways of doing things, so many opportunities for human beings to do things that are really valuable, but there is no way to do it as well,” he said.
“We are going to start with wood, which is a kind of wood for human use.
Then we will add the robot as well, because the robot is a tool, a robot, but it is also a human.”
The robot is designed to have its own personality, so that when you play with it, you can find out how it feels and what it feels like to be the robot.
The company is using a series of human-scale robot prototypes that are now available for anyone to test out.
The first of the humanoid robots, a wood robot named Pheobe, is scheduled to be released in 2019.
The Dutch company plans to create an international robot-sharing network, where members can come together to share designs and help each other out.
“There is a real opportunity to build these networks that will connect people in a much wider sense,” van de Meer said.
The robots have been made from recycled wood, wood pulp, plastic and other materials, with some of the prototypes also using artificial limbs and arms.
The team is also planning to expand the program into making robots specifically for military applications.
“In the future, the Woodies will be able to be used by soldiers and security guards to do many of the tasks of everyday life,” van der MEer said, “or by the police to help them in the fight against crime.”
