The WD-2 robot is a work in progress to make a realistic human face using the power of robotics. As you can see, the robot can’t exactly fit on a body yet, considering the machinery is about three times larger than the actual head is. Though one day, the WD-2 could be used to make a robotic twin of yourself.
WD-2 stands for “Waseda-Docomo face robot 2” and is being developed by a team from Waseda University. The WD-2 robot can change facial expressions with almost as much minutiae as humans. Sources say “While other robots make expressions that mean ‘happy,’ ‘sad,’ ‘excited,’ or ‘angry,’ WD-2 can make tiny movements to reveal a wide spectrum of meanings.” — Andrew Dobrow
