According to Hanson Robotics the robot's skin is made out of a material called Frubber, an elastic polymer that mimics the human skin, and installed with about 40 motors on its face which help create various expressions. Han can answer simple questions and staff said it can be used in the field of customer service. The show ends on April 21. REUTERS/Tyrone Siu

An unidentified LS3 team member shoves an LS 3 (Legged Squad Support System) robot that was galloping off course, back on track during a high-speed demonstration in Homestead, Florida December 20, 2013. The device is designed to accompany soldiers and Marines any place they go on foot, helping to carry their gear. The south Florida city is hosting an international Robotics Challenge Trials this weekend, organized by the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The competition, for the creation of robots that can respond to natural and man-made disasters, was created following the 2011 Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster in Japan. After the disaster the Pentagon sent robots designed to disarm improvised explosive devices in Iraq to try to help fix problems at the destroyed reactor in areas highly contaminated by radioactive releases where humans could not work.

A humanoid robot named Kansei, meaning "sensibility" in Japanese, makes a facial expression depicting "happiness", next to the word "Love" during a demonstration at a laboratory of Meiji University's Robot and Science Institute in Kawasaki, south of Tokyo June 4, 2007. The robot, developed by professor Junichi Takeno and a team of researchers, is able to make up to 36 kinds of facial expressions after typing a word to its software which extracts word associations from a data base of 500,000 words and calculates the level ranging between pleasantness to unpleasantness and prompts the robot to make facial expressions accordingly.

Chinese inventor Tao Xiangli controls his home-made humanoid robot with a remote controller as he poses with it during a photo opportunity at his house located in a old residential area in Beijing August 8, 2013. The self-taught Chinese inventor built the home-made robot, named "The King of Innovation", out of scrap metal and electronic wires that he bought from a second-hand market. Tao completed his creation in less than a year, with costs of production and living expenses amounting to 300,000 yuan ($49,037). However, the robot, which measures 2.1 metres (6.9 feet) in height and 480 kg (1058 lbs) in weight, turned out to be too tall and heavy to walk out of the front door of his house. It can perform simple movements with its hands and legs and also mimic human voices. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon (CHINA - Tags: SOCIETY SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)
