Unveiled at Engadget’s After Hours show at CES, McMullen showed off the new face, say that it is designed for versatility.

McMullen noted that the face is modular, which means that it can be changed, just as a user can change the settings on an app. He also said: a user can be a personality change settings, and create a separate profile and avatar, without having to buy a whole new robot.

To swap faces, a person has to actually peel the skin of the robot head, showing that the outer layer of the robot with its huge bulging eyes, the mouth, and an open skull. A new wig can also be added to the RealHarmony pop.

As soon as the face is changed, users can click the app and turn on the personality of the doll, allowing Solana to life.

While McMullen showed that out of Solana as a head-and-neck on the podium, he added that he was working on the development of heated bodies, which can enable them to respond to touch or possible move.

McMullen said he was “pretty gung-ho” about getting the movement of the neck down to work, adding he had already had a torso that can move and gyrate. The arms are currently being worked on, McMullen added.

McMullen noticed he has parts for about 20 robots and added that by the time they are ready to ship, there may also be a male version.
