The Albert Hubo was demonstrated at the IT Exhibition held at the APEC 2005 summit meeting hall in Busan, Korea. In the photo Albert Hubo is shown shaking hands with visitors. Even the posture of the robot makes him look old, not just the head. They should give him a walking stick.
The robot looks weirder than I imagined. There are apparently 30 motors in the Albert Einstein head that simulate facial expressions.
A hi-res photo of Albert Hubo can be seon on Korean site Dong-A Ilbo. USA Today also has coverage of the Albert Hubo robot. They write that the Albert Einstein robot was the star of the APEC show.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
