Caption: Robot skins. These rubber masks were created by American robot designer David Hanson for use on humanoid robots. They are composed of a spongy polymer called 'Frubber' which is light and flexible enough to be controlled by small servo motors within the robot head. Hanson's robots contain motion detecting and speech recognition sensors that send signals to an external computer running artificial intelligence software. The computer reacts by controlling the servo motors within the robot head and producing life-like facial expressions. Photographed in 2007.
