Android Eve Makes Her Debut

The Korean Institute for Industrial Technology (KITECH) has introduced a new android to the world. Eve R-1 came out for Children's Day at Ministry of Industry, Commerce and Energy.

Eve is a human look-alike with full movement in the face and upper body. Her skin is made of a soft silicone gel and feels similar to human skin.
She can see through her eyes so that she looks directly at a person in conversation. She undestands 400 words and the motors in her face can feign happiness, anger, sadness and delight.

The R-1 model can articulate only the upper body and always sits. The R-2 model, expected to be complete later this year, will have a wider range of expression and will be able to sit or stand.
