I dunno - android was sort of leaning into that boop after back leaning away from the first attempt. I think it encouraged the boop and then assaulted the booper.

That eye blink is amazing! (looks more human than mine) Some very impressive servo, cam, mechanical linkage engineering there (one would suppose).
