Scientists at Northwestern University recently put AI technology to the test, prompting an advanced design algorithm to produce a walking robot. The project aims to showcase the AI's 'instant evolution' capabilities, designing a functional robot in a matter of seconds. 

While the project itself was astoundingly successful, the design of the 'robot' wasn't the most futuristic, but rather a strange creature that was perhaps more 'used sponge' than Cyberman. (AI isn't just for scientists. Check out our guide to the best AI productivity tools).
