MIT’s Nexi MDS Robot: First Test of Expression

This video shows an initial test of the MDS (Mobile Dexterous Social) Robot designed
and built in collaboration with the MIT Media Lab’s Personal Robots Group, UMASS Amherst’s Laboratory for Perceptual Robotics, Xitome Design, and Meka Robotics. It illustrates the robot’s expressive range of movement using scripted animations and pre-recorded speech.
