About Hanson Robotics
Dr. David Hanson founded Hanson Robotics for one purpose: to design, develop, produce and distribute revolutionary, interactive bio-inspired conversational robots, including the world-famous Albert-Hubo featured internationally through countless media organizations. Hanson’s family of anthropomorphic robots display a unique, artificial subconscious, partly due to their cognitive understanding of language-based interactive speech, conversational capabilities and genuine eye contact, coupled with a full range of human facial expressions. Frubber(TM), or “flesh rubber”, is our proprietary spongy, structured elastic polymer that expertly mimics the movement of real human musculature and skin using 1/20th the power of other existing materials. Our Character Engine software brings the whole system to life.
