Info

The inner workings of the first generation face robot from the Hara-Kobayashi Lab in Tokyo, Japan. The first of several face robots made in Fumio Hara's lab, it has a CCD camera in its left eye that sends images to neural-network software that recognizes faces and their expressions. Calling upon its repertoire of programmed reactions, it activates the motors and pulleys beneath its flexible skin to produce facial expressions of its own. From the book Robo sapiens: Evolution of a New Species, page 4.
