A robot 'love story'


A robot that relaxes when stroked and cuddled mesmerises another that loves human faces.

The University of the West of England's David McGoran takes his Heart Robot on a touchy feely tour, while Matt Denton of Micromagic Systems explains how his facial recognition robot works.

But the question they both want answered is how will they react to one another?

Both robots are being displayed at the London Science Museum until July 31st.
