Scientists have created the first 'humanoid' robot that can mimic the facial expressions and lip movements of a human being.

Pretty cool! I could see this being used in the medical field to relate with patients. Still alot of work left to be done, but nice to see the progress!

Right. There's more to it than meets the eye. The computer in the robot can mimic the expression on a person's face. It's not just a robot programmed to make certain moves.

The only thing I could think of while watching that was the theme to the Terminator movies

When they start expressing there own emotions then we can worry, That thing's not even a TOOL! But still, I m gonna start wrapping all my electronics in Faraday Cages & start investing ALOT into massive EMP technology. But it's not creepy.
