This mini-review describes aspects of human-robot interaction to be taken into account when designing humanoid robots with novel roles and social abilities. The review accentuates the psychological complexity that is necessary to be made inherent in the design of humanoid robotic technology. Some recent studies of robot acceptance are summarized leading to the proposal for more complex synthetic sensors being needed in novel humanoid robots. The perspective is designing based on modeling attitude (the social level of human robot interaction), but not opinion (psychological level), which can be a valuable aim for humanoid robotics.
