SEER robot identifies and mimics the expressions of nearby humans

This captioned movie shows a robot created by Japanese researcher Takayuki Todo, which can mirror facial expressions and human-like emotions.

Called Simulative Emotional Expression Robot, or SEER, the humanoid features an in-built camera, allowing it to imitate the eye and eyebrow movements of passersby. By identifying and tracking human faces, the lifelike robotic head can maintain eye contact and mimic emotions in real-time.
