Da Vinci Robot

091715-cronaca-2A robot that looks like Leonardo da Vinci and mimics the facial expressions of the Italian polymath is on show at Milan’s National Museum of Science and Technology.

The android, which uses latest generation facial mimicry technology, resembles Da Vinci in his later years, with a furrowed brow and long beard. This marks the first time that an android has been developed to mimic a deceased historical figure.

The “Living with Robots” event at the museum runs through September 27. During weekends, visitors are able to talk directly to the Da Vinci robot, which will be controlled by a human explainer.
