Humanity just got a little closer to Judgment Day thanks to the Japanese.
Researchers at Waseda University recently unveiled Kobian, a emotional robot that’s more man than machine. Kobian uses 48 actuators to express up to 7 different emotions, including: happiness, surprise, sadness, disgust, and anger (read: bloodlust). It’s also got a double-jointed neck to give it more expressive postures (read: sass).
Kobian’s creators say its expressiveness will help it to interact with people in fields like nursing. Check out this demonstration video, showing just how Kobian will “take care of” us.
