Scientists in Cambridge have created a virtual human head which they say could revolutionise the way we use computers.
Known as Zoe the head has been developed by Toshiba's Cambridge Research Lab and the University of Cambridge's Department of Engineering. It could see us using computers by simply talking to them rather than using a traditional keyboard.
The new system can recite text while recreating emotions like happiness, anger and fear. Students have already remarked upon the similarity with the disembodied head and Holly, the ship's computer, in comedy Red Dwarf.
