Geminoid DK

A biomimetic anthropomorphic robotic head with human-like kinematic properties. Geminoid is going to be used for studying human-robot interaction, in particular people's emotional responses when they face an android representing another person. All of the movements and expressions of Geminoid DK are remotely controlled by an operator with a computer, who uses a motion-capture system that tracks facial expressions and head movements.
