The field of biomorphic robotics can advance as quickly as clear principles of biological systems can be identified, implemented, and tested in robotic devices. Here, we describe the implementation of three principles: (1) the prediction of the sensory consequences of movement and its role in the extraction of novelty and awareness; (2) learning affordances and the direct perception of what an agent can do at a particular instant and how it can do it; (3) exploitation of the physical dynamics of a system to simplify robot control.
