Polish designers are the brains behind this new devise coined  Emotive Heady System or EMYS.  Chief robot designer Professor Krzysztof Tchon comments on their creation,

“the robot is meant to accompany humans in their domestic environment or at offices…so it has to perform some functions useful for humans.  That’s why the robot is able to express emotions to a certain degree and also read human emotions and react accordingly.”

The researchers hope their robot will pave the way towards natural  and unselfconscious human-robot interactions.
