A robot modelled on a four-year-old child, has been developed with a ‘sense of self’. The robot can express six emotions on its face, including raising its eyebrows and generating a light-up smile. Sometimes swearing like an ill-tempered human.

The robot’s goals and emotions change constantly, based on information picked up by sensors and it reacts appropriately to whether it is winning or losing.

When it scores a goal, it smiles and says phrases like ‘got it,’ although there is not much change in intonation whether a phrase is negative or positive.
