humanoid robot packs full range of emotions to creep you out

Japan’s Tmsuk and Waseda University
have certainly proven themselves capable of pushing the boundaries of
robotics on their own, but few could have been prepared for what they
were able devise when they teamed up, their creation itself included.
That somewhat startled face you see above is the KOBIAN Emotional
Humanoid Robot, which is not only able to walk about and interact with
humans, but use its entire body in addition to its facial expressions
to display a full range of emotions. That’s apparently possible in part
thanks to a new double-jointed neck that lets it achieve some more
expressive postures and, of course, a slew of motors in its face that
lets it move its lips, eyelids and those all-important eyebrows. Still
sleeping a little too comfortably? Then head on past the break for the
video. There’s always a video.
