RoboThespian is a pretty stunning demonstration of what our robot overlords will look like in the future. The digital eyes look and act like real eyes, despite being small LCD displays, they have simulated eye lids to feel more real. The robot can dance, do card tricks and tell stories, as well has having fine motor skills through use of it’s ten, very human like fingers.
Unlike robots of the past, the smarts are small enough to fit inside his body, and makes for a very human frame. We all know robots don’t have feelings.. right? Well the multi-colour LEDs behind the iRobot-like body parts, can reflect RoboThespian’s mood. Just stand back when the turn red.
