Caption: Albert Einstein model head. This model is based on the head of Albert Einstein and will be used as a template for a robot Albert Einstein. The Einstein robot, created by US robot designer David Hanson, is covered with a spongy polymer called 'Frubber' that is light and flexible enough to be controlled by small servo motors within the robot head. The arrows and lines on the model head indicate the pulling forces of the motors on the frubber skin. The Einstein robot also contains motion detecting and speech recognition sensors that send signals to an external computer running artificial intelligence software. The computer reacts by controlling 33 servo motors within the robot head which produce life-like facial expressions. Photographed in 2007.
