Whoa! Robots Are Getting Realistic…Maybe TOO Realistic

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueTech TalkPerezTV

This is really cool, but also a bit disturbing. We saw the Terminator movies…we know what happens next. LOLz.

Check out the video (above) of the most realistic looking robot ever, which was created by Geminoid research site's associate professor Henrik Scharfe.

The robot, or Geminoid, was built around professor Scharfe's likeness. Its software allows him to transfer facial expressions and such to the robot.

Here's the best/funniest/creepiest part: When asked if the robot is anatomically correct, Scharfe's answer was "vague."

…Inneresting…

Do U like this robot? Or should it be feared because it's a blatant sign of the impending robot apocalypse?

    I wouldn't want to wake up next to that thing, but it's creepy how closely it acts to a human. It's a work of art that could pass as an autistic human, seriously. It's alive! ;)

    Looks real, but the demo would have been more impressive if the thing would have done more than mimic a few facial gestures over and over.
