Do you feel Emoji expressions can be applied programmatically to Robots?

Thanks & Regards,

Consider this: There are 43 muscles in the face, most of which are controlled by the seventh cranial nerve (also known as the facial nerve). Scientists have studied the muscles needed for both facial expressions, and to do a small smile generally uses 10 muscles; a small frown uses 6. On average, a smile uses 12 and a frown 11. However, since humans tend to smile a lot, these muscles are stronger. A frown may be slightly more effort to produce. What this suggests is that for a robot to produce facial expressions, it'd require a ton of programming and engineering! Yes, it's possible, but very difficult to accomplish.

This robot can mimic a human's eyebrow expressions.



This one's a little creepier.
