Abstract : Recent advances in robotics leads us to consider, on the one hand, the notion of a kernel, a set of stable algorithms that drive developmental dynamics and, on the other hand, variable body envelopes that change over time. This division reverses the classic notion of a fixed body on which different software can be applied to consider a fixed software that can be applied to different kinds of embodiment. Thus, it becomes possible to study how a particular embodiment shapes developmental tra jectories in specific ways. It also leads us to a novel view of the development of skills, from sensorimotor dexterity to abstract thought, based on the notion of a fluid body in continuous redefinition.
