Jules Mimics Human Expression

Jules is a copycat robotic head created by robotics engineers at the University of Bristol in the UK. He mimics facial expressions and lip movements of humans. The head has 34 servo motors and a video cam that maps images to his flexible rubber skin's electronic motors. David Hanson, the team's head, sees future applications in health care settings. While some studies show the humans sometimes reject bots that resemble themselves, others say that the closer they get to realism, the easier it will be to accept them.
