Artificial facial part e.g. lips and eyebrows, for use in humanoid robot for representing e.g. basic human emotions, has actuator for moving drive magnets, where movement of magnets causes movement of
The part has an actuator e.g. motor, pneumatic actuator, hydraulic actuator, solenoid actuator or piezo-actuator, effectively coupled with drive magnets (104, 114, 124). The actuator is configured for moving the drive magnets, where movement of the magnets by magnetic field interactions causes movement of magnetically operative sections (103, 113, 123) i.e. magnets. Components e.g. eyebrows (102), upper lip (112) and lower lip (122), are arranged at an outer side of a wall (101) of the part. The drive magnets are arranged in an inner side of the wall opposite to the components. An independent claim is also included for a method for moving a facial part for a humanoid robot.
