This singer giving a performance in Hong Kong has a good excuse for her a bit impassive face.
What seems to be an attractive woman in her twenties is really a remote-controlled android called Geminoid F designed by the Japanese researchers. In Japan, robots are already common fixtures, and the latest prototypes come ever closer to the line of separating man from machine. The robot has soft silicone skin, realistic hair and teeth, and is able to mimic the voice and facial expressions of its operator. Japanese robotics guru Hiroshi Ishiguro, programmed her built-in computer with 65 behaviors, making her one of the world’s most intelligent robots. The robotic twin can smile, frown and furrow her eyebrows. But most impressively, she can sit still and look creepily confused and lifeless. Take a look. Enjoy.
