Nexi Robot: Expressive Robot
Nexi Robot is an "expressive robot" developed at MIT, to conduct an innovative new study of the way humans interact. Seeking to analyze the effect of body language and facial expressions on trust, the scientists asked participants to engage in a conversation with Nexi — when speaking to some people, the robot would remain still, while with others it would mimic what are thought to be tell-tale signs of lying, such as leaning back or touching its face and hands.
