Take a look at the latest Geminoid robot.

Quote:Living doll? 'Geminoid F' is most convincing 'robot woman' ever - she has 65 facial expressions, talks and even sings

Quote:The biggest difference between Ishiguro’s copy of himself and F are the number of actuators, or motor-like mechanisms, that control behaviors. Geminoid HI-1 boasts about 50, while F has only 12. This has dropped the cost from more than $1 million to $110,000, which Ishiguro hopes will help popularize the product. Scientists were able to simulate human-like behaviors using electronic signals in the robot’s built-in computer. The robotic twin can smile, frown and furrow her eyebrows, but most of the time the silicone-skinned clone just looks a little dazed

I'm a bit creeped out over those things as well. I wonder how long it will be until it's legal in Japan to marry one? I don't think you can marry anything in Finland or the states with a plastic head. chuckle.gif

Thats odd, both of us reading about Robots perhaps something in the air.

I thought your Robot far from pretty, a little scary. Interesting though, seems like lots of teams around the world are trying for a really humanlike robot.
Could do with one for the housework. lol.gif

I suppose I will have to wait until I am a 100, they would be far too expensive. That will give me almost 50 years.

I think I'll survive without a robot. chuckle.gif

But scary thought JR, wouldn't surprise me one bit if they haven't already started combining the life-like sex dolls with robotic features.

Stepford wives.

First two questions in the human head:

"Can I f**k it?"

"Can I kill something/one with it?"
