It can blink, shift its eyes and neck, bow, and even breathe. A webcam on your end watches your face and head movements and has the robot mimic them. It’s one of the most complex and human-like telerobots ever seen and it really freaks me out. This thing is sort of the epitome of the Uncanny Valley.
