Cyclops robot designed to win any staring contest versus humans

You probably think you've already seen the scariest robots being constructed in real-life, which probably means you haven't seen the Cyclops. Powered by fifteen spherical joints and fifty artificial muscles, the robot moves its head and torso as it tracks an individual looking in its direction. Positing a rather unique take on the field of robotics, the creators of Cyclops say, "We believe that this project has helped to show that human metaphors don't help us to understand emerging robot technologies. Cyclops is a proposition that we should start a fresh journey in search of an original aesthetic." The designers of the project claim their aim was to create an 'intelligent life-likeness' capable of interacting effectively with humanity, but if this thing stepped out of an alley and tried to chat you up would you really do anything but run for your life?
