Ever-1, "female" android who can only move her upper bodyparts and face "is made from a silicon jelly that feels similar to human skin. The face is a composite of two stars, and its torso on a singer.
The 15 monitors in the robotic face allow it to interpret the face of an interlocutor and look back at whoever stands near it. She undestands 400 words and the motors in her face can feign happiness, anger, sadness and delight. ...
The Ever-2, which will have improved vision and ability to express emotions and can sit or stand, will be debuted towards the end of the year."
It, oops, she claims to be the second droid worldwide with her facial expression capabilities.
The android was introduced by the Korean Institute for Industrial Technology (KITECH).
