China is developing humanoid robots with advanced facial movements.

Former engineers from Ex-Robots are focusing on enhancing the facial expressions and emotions of humanoid robots. CEO Li Boyang emphasized that they have their own software and algorithm teams, highlighting that these robots are of the most complex class. The robots are capable of reflecting emotional expressions and responding appropriately to their environment.

At China’s Ex-Robots factory, engineers are developing humanoid robots with a focus on enhancing facial expressions and emotions.


Ex-Robots CEO Li Boyang stated, “We have our own software and algorithm teams,” adding that humanoid robots are the most complex class of robotic products.


Li Boyang stated, “There are many basic models and algorithms that everyone uses, usually open source. However, we are more focused on how to enable artificial intelligence to recognize and express expressions and emotions.”

As an Ex-Robots employee moves their head, smiles, and sticks out their tongue, a humanoid robot mimics their movements thanks to small motors placed in various cavities of its head.


Boyang stated that the developed humanoid robot can reflect emotional reactions through facial expressions. “We are also working on a basic model. Our model is multimodal and has the ability to express emotions. It can perceive the surrounding environment and provide feedback with appropriate facial expressions,” he said.

Ex-Robots stated that producing a humanoid robot takes between two weeks and a month, with prices ranging from $207,000 to $280,000.

The primary purpose of the company’s robots so far has been to be displayed in museums located in the same building as the Ex-Robots factory.

Li noted that robots will play a significant role in the healthcare and education sectors in the future. “Psychological counseling and healthcare are definitely future application scenarios. We are currently conducting related research for auxiliary treatment and preliminary screening of emotional and psychological disorders. Additionally, I believe that emotional interaction has broader applications in service areas such as those aimed at children,” he said.
