KIST-face-robot

The Korea Institute of Science & Technology (KIST) held an open house Technology Exhibit, where some of their latest research and development projects were showcased.  Among the robots exhibited was a facial expression robot called FR-i, designed with moving eyes, eye brows, and flexible lips.  It looks in the direction of people nearby, detects facial features (such as eyes and mouth) and can copy or simply display a variety of expressions.  In related news Mahru III, a humanoid robot co-developed by KIST and Samsung, copies the movements of a human wearing a special suit which senses muscle movements.  Videos of both robots in action after the break.
