Known for: Freakish looks and ability to learn
Despite CB2's creepy looks, it is one of Japan's most sophisticated robots. Created to help Japanese researchers study childhood learning, the child bot is currently learning to recognize facial expressions and cluster them into categories such as happiness. It has already taught itself to walk with the help of a human, and can recognize human touch, such as head stroking.
