Yale University's Marynel Vazquez and colleagues have built a robot photographer called Shutter, designed to put humans at ease.

Said Vazquez, "We're looking at what the robot photographer can do to get more positive reactions from people. Now that we have a social agent that can engage people and change what they're doing, we can ask, 'What opportunities does that open for taking photos?'"

The team is focusing on making Shutter humorous, in order to elicit smiles and shoot better photos.
