UCSD's robot baby appears, is happy, sad, a little creepy

Development on the UCSD's Diego-san has been underway for several years and now the robot child is read for his first home movie. The bot is being constructed to better understand the cognitive development of children, with a camera behind each eye recording (and learning from) human interactions around it. There are 27 moving parts in the face alone and Diego-san is able to replicate a whole gamut of emotions -- and give us shivers as he does. We've got some unerringly realistic footage right after the break.
