Submission + - Your plastic pal who's fun to be with - or not ( 2

Kittenman writes: The BBC magazine pages have an article on human trust of robots. The article cites a poll (done on facebook so certainly well-sourced) over the 'best face' design for a robot that would be trusted. But we still distrust them — because (tfa states) they look unwell (or like corpses) and do not behave as expected.

So would you trust a robot? How about one with the "trusting face"?
