We describe the design of an anthropomorphic robot head intended as a research platform for studying autonomously learning active vision systems. The robot head closely mimics the major degrees of freedom of the human neck/eye apparatus and allows a number of facial expressions. We show that our robot head can shift its direction of gaze at speeds which come close to that of human saccades. Since our design only makes use of low cost consumer grade components, it paves the way for widespread
