Ever-2 korean robotKorean roboticists have produced a successor to the humanoid robot, Ever-1. Where Ever-1‘s complement of 35 servos controlling facial expressions allowed it to ‘express the four emotions of happiness, sadness, excitement and anger’ Ever-2 has 60 motors driving facial expressions and has added ‘fright, discomfort, interest and boredom’ to its repertoire [source].

If you’re interested in emotional expression in robotics see Cynthia Breazeal’s Kismet at the MIT Humanoid Robotics Group for pioneering work.
