Geminoid-DK

Now, we’ve all seen the Geminoid before – an extremely realistic robot that was a spitting image of the professor who created it. The robot originated in Japan by Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro, but now it looks like it has made its way over to Europe. A professor from Denmark decided to create a Geminoid of his own, and this one is even more realistic than Hiroshi Ishiguro’s original creation.  (videos)

 

Called the Geminoid-DK, it is based on the Geminoid-F, but it is made to look like the professor instead of a female robot. Judging from the videos online, the robot looks incredibly lifelike and could be easily passed off as a human being. It scares me to think of what the world will be like in the future if these robots get mass produced and started living amongst us.
