Robot android FACE transmits human emotions through facial expressions

One of the ideas that form the basis of the principle of "Sinister Valley", which was developed by the Japanese Masahiro Mori (Masahiro Mori), is more than an android robot looks human and mimics human behavior, the more attractive it is for ordinary people to a certain limit, after which comes the backlash. And in yet another attempt to cross the principle of this "sinister valley" a team of researchers from the University of Pisa, Italy, has developed a new humanoid robot FACE, whose face can take a variety of expressions, sometimes, even the most difficult. By creating this robot, the researchers were intended searching for the answer to one of the fundamental issues of robotics - the robot can clearly express human emotions?
Latstseri Nicole (Nicole Lazzeri) and her team have designed an incredibly complex system of the robot face FACE, which is driven by electric motors 32, which allows the robot to realistically imitate the movements of almost all of the muscles and muscle groups of the human face. It is known that under the surface of the human face are about 100 muscles, which differ in form and function.
