Realistic Humanoid Robot: Cool or Creepy?
Researchers in Japan and Denmark have been collaborating to produce one of the world's most advanced robots ever: the Geminoid DK, an exact physical clone of Danish academic Henrik Scharfe. On first glance, it's nearly impossible to tell the robot from a human. Just check out the video, which demonstrates an early test. Since the video was shot, the Geminoid DK has also been programmed to mimic common human facial expressions, resulting in an even more lifelike replica. Japanese entertainment company Kokoro is one of the production partners, meaning that someday soon, these uncanny robots may be available for purchase.
