Albert's Head Greets Conference Visitors


This Albert Einstein head was designed by Texan David Hanson and was used to welcome visitors to the Technology, Entertainment and Design conference in Long Beach, California. (Note Hanson's Zeno in the background.) Using the same technology as in the recent movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," Albert follows guests with his eyes and can smile or frown with 32 motors to mimic 48 face muscles and hidden cameras in his eyes. While many other Hanson robots are on display elsewhere, we think the only head we want watching us is that of The King, thank ya vera much.
