Nexi is a next generation humanoid robot conceived and designed by roboticist Cynthia Breazeal's group at the MIT Media Lab. They call this so-called "emotional robot" an MDS (Mobile/Dexterous/Social). The robot can move its tiny body, hands, and face suggestive of human emotions. Gizmowatch says of Nexi, " Its arms, wrists, and hands are fully adaptable to clutch and raise stuffs up to 10 pounds. It possesses perfectly changeable features including eyes, eyebrows, eyelids, and mouth movement. Markedly attractive and chillingly touchy in a cartoonish way, and yet doesn't cause any problem recognizing the feelings. It moves on a pair of animatedly self-balancing wheels."
The damn robots are gonna rule the world peeps. Although I think they already do.
