Robot Hardware

Artificial eyes to "monitor areas over 360°" (I wish I knew how area over 360° looks like) in real time, touch sensors that allow feel out the likeness of Abraham Lincoln on a penny, and alcohol-powered muscles that are 100 times stronger than natural muscles, able to do 100 times greater work per cycle and produce, at reduced strengths, larger contractions than natural muscles. What's next?
