A humanoid robot named Han developed by Hanson Robotics reacts as the controller commands it via a mobile phone to make a facial expression during the Global Sources spring electronics show in Hong Kong April 18, 2015. 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

A man looks at the HRP-4C Miim humanoid robot at the venue of the Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group in Tokyo October 9, 2012. Global growth in advanced economies is too weak to bring down unemployment and what little momentum exists is coming primarily from central banks, the International Monetary Fund said in its World Economic Outlook, released ahead of its twice-yearly meeting, which will be held in Tokyo later this week.

RNPS IMAGES OF THE YEAR 2007 - A humanoid robot named Kansei, meaning "sensibility" in Japanese, makes a facial expression depicting "fear", next to the word "Bomb" 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 which prompts the robot to make facial expressions accordingly.

The humanoid female robot was developed to give practical experience for dental students and can be used for examination purposes. The robot displays autonomous action of physiological phenomenon such as eye and tongue movement and can be controlled by either original programming or an instructor using an external touch panel, the university said.
