Human are the best ever creatures evolved on this planet that has excelled in its cognitive skills and intelligence. The fear of Robotics under the guise of artificial intelligence to replace the entire humanity is gaining ground with the increased use of Cyborg technologies for variety of human functions.

They used natural skin stimulation that looks like human soft tissues to create human-like facial texture. Apart from blinking eyes, she can spontaneously make 66 facial expressions by looking at the human face.
