What Should a Robot's Face Look Like?

What Should a Robot's Face Look Like?

It's also going to be very important to establish whether it's a human-like face that people respond to, as opposed to just human features . WALL-E (to take just one example) had human features (eyes and eyebrows) that provided a huge range of expression while staying safely out of the Uncanny Valley. Would humans really prefer something borderline creepy for social tasks, even if at first glance they think that they might be more comfortable with it?
