Albert Hubo is a humanoid robot that combines a mechanical body with a robotic replica of Albert Einstein's head. Its face can show happiness, sadness, anger, and surprise—and it always looks smart.

Albert Hubo shook hands with former U.S. President George W. Bush in 2005.
Albert Hubo was developed by a research team led by Professor Jun-Ho Oh, a researcher at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST) and director of the Hubo Lab. The body of Albert Hubo is based on the third version of the KAIST Humanoid Robot (KHR-3), introduced in 2004, which also originated the Hubo humanoid series. The head of Albert Hubo was made by Hanson Robotics, a company specializing in ultra-realistic androids (most famous for its Philip K. Dick android).
