FEATURES
With 42 degrees of freedom in the head, the Na'vi figure is able to perform a wide range of facial expressions that emulate emotion and convey feeling. The robot features independent shoulder movements in 9-DoF arms, allowing the figure to animate her shoulders and scapula to create a much richer and realistic body language. The control software uses real-time, model-based collision detection to prevent commanded motions from causing any damage.
