Apparently even robots get hot when they're working out.

So when a group of engineers were trying to come up with a way to prevent their robot from overheating, they looked to the human body for inspiration.

And the answer was...

Perspiration!

The robot's name is Kengoro, and it is able to perform longer without burning out its motors because it can sweat to cool down.

Thanks to the technology developed by researchers from the University of Tokyo’s JSK Lab, Kengoro can do push-ups for 11 minutes straight.

You can read about the cooling system they designed over on IEEESpectrum.
