Humanoid Einstein Head Robot To Rep for Korea

I really don't make this stuff up.

Yoo Jae-woong, director of the Korean Overseas Information Service (KOIS), said Monday (Dec. 5) that Albert Hubo, who embodies IT Korea, was selected as a new hero of the campaign for Dynamic Korea.

The robot, topped with a head modeled after scientist Albert Einstein, was developed by a team led by professor Oh Joon-ho of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). He walks, talks, shows emotions much as humans do.

Publicity of "Dynamic Korea-Albert Hubo" appeared in the December edition of the English-language Monthly magazine Korea Policy Review that came out Monday and will make appearances in major publications in and out of the country and in places like the Incheon International Airport.
