Creepy Ass Japanese Robot Baby (Afetto)

 Robot Rising

Japanese researchers have or better yet, are building this creepy ass hell robot baby to study cognitive movement. Asada’s team, which are the inventors and builders, came up with "Affetto", which can produce a wide range of facial expressions by moving actuators in its face which create the creepy facial movements. It can look inquisitive, happy, surprised, upset and more, by tilting its eyebrows, moving its jaw, panning its eyes and tilting its head. Its eyeballs are equipped with cameras and it has microphones and tactile sensors embedded in its silicone skin,giving this thing a pretty realistic appearance.This project is playing an effort to develop a full bodied robot that resembles a human as most realistically as possible. In my other post you see what our future world may look like and if your a fan of this setting you can thank Japanese researchers for doing so.

I am not sure if i am trusting the japan right now. those are just a little creepy

Wow, these things get better and better every day. It was only a month ago or so that I saw an article on some women robots the Japanese made which I thought were pretty good. This blows them out of the water though!

Spiderflaw said...

I remember seeing they made a robot secretary in japan that can show emotion as well!

Spongeworthy said...

Giulzz said...

Haha, japan are at the forefront of everything. And I'd have to agree with the "creepy" part of the title! Thanks for the post.

Obi-wan Mikenobi said...

Every robot the Japanese make is always creepy, I don't care how complex and intellegent it is. Rule one should be to reduce the creep factor down to safe levels!

Seems pretty normal for japan. I wonder when they'll turn it into a sex doll, or have girls wearing heels crush its head.
