NSF humanoid robot head

Poor thing — all it's got by way of a name, apparently, is "humanoid robot head." It's bad enough being a Meccha with an over-enlarged Pinocchio complex as it is, and then the University of Southern California goes and leaves her/him/it without a monikor. The talking head's claim to fame is that it can be taught to perform tasks that potentially could stand as precursor building blocks for even more autonomous robots. It can also tune in to visual cues and focus in on items in its environment it considers "interesting." Apparently that guy above passes the test.
