ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
UW student researches ways to make robots seem more human
Apparently, my raging extrovert mode (i.e. staring at their shoes) doesn't always bring about the desired comfort level...
Raise your eyes to crotchal level and see what happens. I do it sometimes instead of staring at my shoes, a wall, their eyes or whatever. I think it throws them off a little, but I'm not sure.
What are you doing, Dave? I mean, like, whatever you're doing... that's okay, bro. I mean, like, whatever, man.
