Researchers from the Machine Perception Laboratory at UCSD have developed this baby robot to simulate the development of a 1-year-old. And clearly, they’ve become somewhat attached to the little automaton with a gigantic head.
The robot baby is named Diego-San, and aside from joy, he’s bundled with a high resolution camera and 6-axis accelerometer. And while his coordination is limited to standing from a chair and holding a bottle, Diego-San’s face has 20 moving parts to convey emotion without speaking—the engineering of which probably necessitates the freakishly large head.
Height 130 cm and weigh robot is 30 kg. It seems that his head is so big and to some extent balance the physics of robot appearance is stirred.
