Japan Creates Freakiest, Most Realistic Robot EverMarch 7, 2011 0 Comments
Check out the picture down below. See the guy on the right? He's not a guy. His name is Geminoid DK, the third of a series of androids created by professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University and his team at Japan's Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute.
Geminoid DK was constructed to resemble Henrik Scharfe, an associate professor of Aalborg University in Denmark.
Ishiguro maintains that the group's purpose for the Geminoid is to further understand the "emotional affordances" in human-robot interaction.
Oh Japan, is there no end to the robotic awesome you produce?
