Curi the robot is the next generation of socially aware upper-torso humanoid, following the Simon platform. It features an updated ear architecture, and refined features such as a mouth and eye iris. Unlike the stationary Simon, this robot is mounted on a mobile platform, so it can move around the room to interact with people and objects. The project is currently under development at the Socially Intelligent Machines Lab at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Her name, a shortened version of "Madame Curie" and "Curious" was crowdsourced from the Lab's fans through an online competition.
