London, June 24 (ANI): Researchers at Waseda University in Japan have unveiled Kobian, a “humanoid” robot, which can express seven human emotions.
The ground-breaking robot can express feelings, including delight, surprise, sadness and dislike. Kobian also uses motors in its face to move its lips, eyelids and eyebrows into various positions, according to pinktentacle, reports The Telegraph.
The robot, which features a double jointed neck that helps it achieve more expressive postures, can also walk around, perceive its environment and perform physical tasks.
It was developed and unveiled by researchers at Waseda’s Graduate School of Advanced Science and Engineering in Tokyo on Tuesday June 23.
They were led by Professor Atsuo Takanashi, and worked with robot manufacturer Tmsuk, based in Kitakyushu, southern Japan. (ANI)
