Researchers aim to give robots a more human-like face with a system that beams 3D images onto the back of a transparent plastic mask.

This is simply amazing. I am thinking about a million different ways this technology could be used... Imagine soldiers overseas able to have a virtual face to face using Skype with their families... Teachers could teach simultaneously at 20 different campuses around the world and be virtually present in each class!

Take video conferences. While participants in such sitdowns are usually displayed onscreen, with Mask-bot "you can create a realistic replica of a person that actually sits and speaks with you at the conference table," said Takaaki Kuratate, one of the researchers who worked on the project. "You can use a generic mask for male and female, or you can provide a custom-made mask for each person." Think head on a platter.

Doesn't this blow your mind? It does for me.
