The biggest release yet is coming to our platform. Including an incredibly powerful face engine, a library of skills and gestures, new ways to program Furhat and much, much more.

You wanted us to give Furhat a makeover, and we did just that

We understood after our latest round of user feedback that a new way of creating expressive and authentic characters was needed. And hence, FaceCore was born

What is FaceCore?

An all-new face engine based on Unity and ARKit, allowing for more life-like and immersive characters and giving you more fine control over expressions and gestures.

Much higher quality animations and more customizable and expressive faces are readily available out of the box, and can be edited to suit your ideal robot persona.

A whole new pool of readily accessible content

Another sought after feature we are often asked for is a collection of freely downloadable content for all users. So we introduce to you, the Furhat Library

What’s included in the Furhat Library?

The online library houses everything from brand new example skills, code snippets and pre-defined facial expressions. This enables users to iterate on existing code samples and a diverse range of gestures to get up and running much faster.

We are also launching a very unique way of creating specific gestures via motion capture – allowing users to record their own facial expressions using the ARKit on iPhone 10+.

And we have much more in store

Based on user feedback, we have revamped the virtual robot in the Furhat SDK, facilitated new ways of programming skills and improved the ease of use and interactive capabilities of the Furhat robot

The Virtual Furhat – what’s new?

We’re excited to say that both FaceCore and the Furhat Library are also accessible for the virtual robot!

You will also see a higher quality animation of the robot, along with new face models that have only previously been accessible on the physical robot, including the Anime character.

SDK users also now have access to the same creation tools that are available for the physical robot.

Alternative ways of programming Furhat


Skills on the Furhat platform are built in our domain-specific-language (DSL) in the Kotlin programming language, a modern version of Java – the world’s fastest developing programming language.

50+ programming languages

The Furhat Remote API is a way to connect and give commands to the physical or virtual Furhat robot in a vast number of supported programming languages, including Python, C#, JavaScript, Rust and many more.

Our graphical programming tool allows all you non-programmers out there to build fairly advanced skills, particularly useful for quickly prototyping skills that can be used in both Wizarded and automated interactions
