Here are facial expressions of the best humanoid robots

Meet “Yangyang,” China’s newest robot with the freakish ability to mimic human facial expressions.

Presented earlier this month at a Hong Kong electronics fair, is America’s equivalent “Han” from Hanson Robotics.

Controlled with a cell phone app, Han has approximately 40 motors embedded in his face that allow him to make realistic facial expressions, Reuters reports.

Here are some of Han’s facial expressions:
