When you look sad, I’m inclined to comfort you. When I laugh, I invite you to join me in laughing. Communicating without using words. These two spectacular heads also show countless emotions and react to each other. Unlike people, these Talking Heads don’t do it by means of muscles, but through light. Per head, some 4,000 individually controllable LEDs provide different facial expressions in various colors. The heads react to each other, and conduct conversations by means of light.
