At Hong Kong’s “Robots in Motion 2012″ Expo, one of the world’s most sophisticated (and beautiful) robots came to life

Imagine a world where robots conduct traffic, work in factories, make sushi and vacuum office floors. It may not be far away. In Japan, robots are already common fixtures, and the latest prototypes come ever closer to the line separating man from machine. This week, during her first visit to Hong Kong, female android Geminoid F chatted, sang and smiled while an awestruck crowd snapped photos. Her creator, Japanese robotics guru Hiroshi Ishiguro, programmed her built-in computer with 65 behaviors, making her one of the world’s most intelligent robots.

Ishiguro last made international headlines in 2006 when he made an android replica of himself, the Geminoid HI-1. For his pioneering work, CNN named him one of eight “geniuses who will change your life,” and the BBC chronicled his story in the 2008 documentary Man-Machine. Ishiguro says his new robot F, as he’s named her, is more elegant and approachable than his past creations.

    gee, I wonder how many vaginas she has. Imagine the touque built into that. Ya, right. like she wasnt designed for men for
    sex. They must feed their needy squirty thingys. Let me know when they make a guy one with a nice 9 incher, and who can work on my car and clean house. lol

    that’s 34 seconds I won’t get back.

    all these humanoid ‘robots’ (it’s actually just an animatronic) fall into uncanny valley. I have yet to see one that doesn’t look like a creepy puppet.

    Not a robot, an animatronic. And a crap one at that.

    Is she equipped with a mute button?

  • Ardin

    She looks like all her joints have seized up nd she has some sort of rare bone condition.

  • sassa

    Not very animated ! She needs a fresh bank of Duracells.
    Love the previous comments.
    Yep, a waste of time for sure.

    funny how people pass judgement based upon a crappy video.

    I saw this sort of thing at Disney World in 1973.

    Oh so this is where OBAMA is actually from!

    Is it just mew or does everyone else think anonymous is the dumbest ass on each story I visit?

  • Well Pat

    There is no proof that Obama is a Robot.
    Obama is NOT a robot.

  • RAINSCRYPT

    what prompted that?

  • Anonymous

    Anonymous, it’s just mew.

  • Earthling

    All part of a luciferian agenda of creating illusions.

  • Anonymous

  • Tung-Alex
