Since we were kids, robots showing feelings have been in the grey area of the amazing and the creepy.  Being able to interpret how a robot is feeling have being an exiting and daunting idea.

Engineered arts a British company bring us a step closer to that realization. With their RoboThespian (Thespian is a word for actor) and a solid implementation of open source implementation like Blender they have been able to recreate theatrical scenes, as well as to imprint a degree of emotion to the robot movements and expressions.

The robots are for sale and fully available to research purposes, be sure to check them out, meanwhile we leave you with a couple of videos that show how the system is implemented and the degree of realism the robot can achieve.
