Telenoid / Hiroshi Ishiguro, Osaka University and ATR

Hiroshi Ishiguro (JP) has been experimenting for years with Geminoids, anthropoid robots controlled by camera, microphone and data link. Professor of Robotics at Osaka University and director of the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute at Kansai Science City, Ishiguro is currently working on Telenoid R1, a telepresence robot that can not only speak but also use facial expressions to reinforce what it’s saying.
