The folks at the KAIST Machine Control Lab came up with something attention getting for the 2005 APEC conference. They replaced the stock head of their HUBO KHR-3 humanoid robot with an animatronic replica of Albert Einstein's head. The head contains about 30 motors and renders expressions appropriate for its speech. The result is truly strange. The Cyborg physicist, who became know as Albert Hubo and shook hands with visitors during the show was apparently the big hit. In addition to shaking hands the robot also knows sign language. Albert Hubo got a brief mention in USA Today's coverage of APEC. For more see our previous article on HUBO project team leader Oh Jun Ho. More photos (with and without the Einstein head) can be found in the Lab's photo gallery.
