New Scientist TV: Creepy robotic head mimics a child
: "The robot's face is made from soft silicone that mimics skin and flexible actuators underneath help it achieve childlike expressions. It's also equipped with cameras in its eyeballs, microphones and tactile sensors embedded beneath its skin. The team thinks that this system will allow humans to interact with it more naturally, compared to existing metallic robots that use electric motors and can be dangerous to get too close to."
