CB2 is a humanoid biomimetic robot with soft white skin can learn human emotions through observing facial expressions. It has also *learned* to walk pneumatically. They expect it to get up to the level of a chimp or baby in a few years. Pretty impressive and creepy at the same time though traditionally animistic Japan has less of an uncanny valley thing to get over believing things have ‘souls’.
