    Default sasguru's identity revealed!

    'Jules' - a disembodied androgynous robotic head - can automatically copy the movements, which are picked up by a video camera and mapped on to the tiny electronic motors in his skin.

    It can grin and grimace, furrow its brow and 'speak' as his software translates real expressions observed through video camera 'eyes'.

    Nah, too real to be sasguru.

    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Jules has 34 internal motors covered with flexible rubber ('Frubber') skin, which was commissioned from roboticist David Hanson in the US for BRL.
    It takes 30 motors to 'frown' but only 6 to 'smile', and all 34 to spout sh1te on an internet forum
