THIS IS THE WORLD'S MOST EXPRESSIVE ROBOTIC HEAD




The thought of androids – who do not even know they aren't real – who look just like us is a bit unnerving.

Garner Holt Productions (GHP) has created an expressive animatronic figure that is the most advanced humanoid robotic head ever created.

The figure utilises theme park quality construction to accomplish incredible special effects movement in a robotic or animatronic human platform.

GHP is one of the world leaders in animatronics, a photo-realistic rendition combines 40 unique motions, 1,000 "animation frames" per second, and some amazingly realistic synthetic skin.

The results are facial expressions so lifelike they could happily fit in among the robots of Westworld. Unfortunately, the head is not a hot rancher's daughter, it is an old wrinkly dude that looks like he might shoot you for a shot of whiskey.

Yet, there is still a question that remains... If animatronics are so insanely good these days, why do so many Hollywood blockbusters still insist on serving up unconvincingly weightless CGI effects?

The video below shows the sleepy looking robot head in action. It almost looks like a human, and if it were just a tiny bit more fluid in its movements, some might not be able to tell the difference.
