 +<​u>'''​Article:'''</​u>​ [http://​www.et.byu.edu/​groups/​tilar/​disalvo.pdf All Robots Are Not Created Equal: The Design and Perception of Humanoid Robot Heads] by Carl DiSalvo, Francine Gemperle, Jodi Forlizzi, and Sara Kiesler
  
 +<​u>'''​Introduction to paper:'''</​u>​
 +
 +Pictures of industrial/​research,​ consumer, and fictional robot heads were presented in a survey to find out which robots look most human-like. ​ From that, it was determined which facial features have the most impact on "​humanness." ​ Eyes had the greatest impact, but without statistical significance. ​ The mouth had the next greatest impact (62.5%), and with statistical significant. ​ The authors redesigned the appearance of their robot head based on their conclusions.
 +
 +<​u>'''​Application to personal research:'''</​u>​
 +
 +If the Mechanical Engineering department wants to make their robot human-looking,​ then they should give it eyes, nose, eyelids, and a mouth, and its head should be taller than it is wide.  If they don't want it to be human-looking,​ they can do the opposite. ​ Skin was mentioned as useful in making the product appear "​finished,"​ maybe it would be good to have a covering for the robots created in the Mechanical Engineering Department (like a shirt).
 +
 +<​u>'''​Questions:'''</​u>​
 +
 +* If a perfectly human-looking robot head isn't atainable, is it better to purposefully create a robot head that looks a little robotic in order to avoid the uncanny valley?
 +
 +<​u>'''​Additional notes from paper:'''</​u>​
 +
 +* The '''​head'''​ is assumed to play a significant role in human-robot interaction
 +* Suggesting facial features may be enough, leaving the rest to '''​imagination'''​
 +* The '''​uncanny valley'''​ by Mashiro Mori claims that something becomes more comfortable or familiar as it looks more human-like, except at the point where it looks VERY CLOSE to human-like, but not quite, in which case it feels uncomfortable.
