Kismet greets Cynthia
In the late 1990s, MIT launched a project to study social interactions between humans and robots. Pictured here is Kismet with creator Cynthia Breazeal. With its human-like face, Kismet can express various emotions based on human cues. For facial dexterity, the robot was equipped with four separate motors on its lips, multiple cameras to enable peripheral vision, and a microphone in its ear.
