Scary Robot Face is Scary, Ugly


The WD-2 scary robot face from Tokyo University can allegedly transform to look like anyone. It has a projector in the rear so it can project video of your face and expressions to make it even more frightening. It has "17 facial points, for a total of 56 degrees of freedom," and is made from a "highly elastic and rigid (!?) material called Septom, with bits of steel wool mixed in for added strength." Neat concept, but I feel sorry for the poor bastard whose face was used in the picture, because that may very well be the world's ugliest mug.

Two crazy videos after the jump, one of the face changing, one with projection.
