Humanoid robots from Hanson Robotics

Hanson Robotics creates and fabricates humanlike robots.  Hanson robots incorporate the world’s first expressive biped robot, Albert-Hubo.

A hyper-realistic Einstein robot at the University of California, San Diego learned to smile and make facial expressions through a process of self-guided learning.

Hanson’s humanlike robots have the ability to fulfill the psychological need for face-to-face communication, with applications for the family, therapy, research, education, and medicine.

What makes Hanson robots so unique? Start with the ability to simulate interactive, humanlike facial features. This is all thanks to Frubber™ or or “flesh rubber”, which is a supple, organized versatile polymer that expertly imitates the development of genuine human musculature and skin utilizing 1/20th the force of different materials.

The man who build the most lifelike android is Dr David Hansen. In the 1980s,  David Hanson spent two years studying at the University of North Texas in Denton. In 1992, he was accepted into the BFA program at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence.

Hanson’s Robots:

  • Jules – The complete package
  • Joey Chaos – Newest edition
  • Alice/Eve – Newest female created for MIRA Labs in Geneva Switzerland
  • Bina48 –  Bust-like head and shoulders
  • Philip K Dick – A collaboration between freethinkers
  • Albert Einstein Hubo – completely battery-powered, untethered walking body
  • Diego-San – Machine-learning methods to analyze face-to-face interaction
