Japanese researchers have developed Kansei, a robotic face that’s capable of making 36 expressions. Video demonstration after the break.

When Kansei hears a word, it uses software to access a database of 500,000 keywords, create word associations and determine an emotion — ranging from happiness to sadness, anger and fear — which is expressed by a system of 19 actuators under its silicone skin
