Kobian has 48 "actuators" which allow it to express a range of emotions, including happiness, fear, surprise, sadness and disgust, by opening and closing its eyes, moving its lips and eyebrows and gesturing with its arms and legs.
Of course, being a robot, Kobian is only able to express pre-programmed emotional responses.
The head of the research team that designed the robot hopes it could someday be used to help the elderly with household chores and in nursing homes. For now, it is still at the prototype stage of development.
