Smiling Robot Face is Made from Living Human Skin Cells

Researchers have created a smiling robot face made from living human skin cells, promising a future where robots can emote and communicate in a more lifelike way. This breakthrough not only enhances robotic interaction but could also revolutionize the cosmetics industry with its realistic wrinkles. The skin is a cultured mix of human cells in a collagen scaffold, placed on a 3D-printed resin base, including ligaments for strength and flexibility.

The robot also looks a little like Lady Cassandra from Doctor Who. Just imagine it saying “Moisturize me!”
