To prepare you for Friday’s niche blog post I’ve found this video on TED.com that shows David Hanson’s newest robot prototype–one that can read and mimic facial expressions, or as he states it, a robot that can “empathize with you.” Videos of some of David’s other robots (he has made 20 in the last eight years) are astounding and quite spooky. It would also seem, from this presentation, that you can find much more of his work on YouTube. He ends the video with the prototype of a toy-robot designed as a “childhood companion for kids” and priced at $299. Whatever happened to the kid next door?
