So the ‘Human-Robot Interaction’ project based out of the Bristol Robotics Laboratory in England has created ‘Jules’, an androgynous robot [head] that can copy human facial expressions, including eyes, lips and more. The facial expressions of a ‘real’ human are picked up by video camera and then interpreted and driven to ‘Jules’ servo motors overlayed with something resembling human ‘skin’. The team from BRL includes Chris Melhuish, Neill Campbell and Peter Jaeckel. Watch the video below to see the amazing movement of the eyes and lips.
