After having seen a host of robots that mimic human facial expressions, it’s time scientists added some real feel to the mechanical scale and develop a robot that also responds accordingly. With the face of Albert Einstein, it is a robot stuffed with a computerized brain capable of emulating human expressions and emotional intelligence.
Developed by software developers at UCSD’s California Institute of Technology, the built-in software in the head allows the robot to recognize facial expressions, thereby helping the robot interact naturally with humans. The robot to make its public appearance at the Technology, Entertainment and Design conference, is made with 31 motors and has flesh-like substance called Frubber to make easy the robots facial expression. Seems a stride closer to a greater bonding in human-robot interaction.
