Behold The Future - Humanoid Robot Asuna
Description: The hyper-real robots that will replace receptionists, pop stars and even sex dolls. Unnervingly human androids coming to a future very near you. Incredibly life-like robots are currently causing a storm in Japan where they are being prepared for mass commercialisation. With new androids creators have beaten 'Uncanny Valley syndrome' where humans are revulsed by robots that look real - but not real enough. Now being put to use as receptionists and newsreaders Predicted that within a decade fully independent 'gemanoids' will be in circulation once advances in artificial intelligence are made Scientists even talking about humans taking androids as partners. Chillingly life-like robots are causing a storm in Japan – where their creators are about to launch them as actresses, full-size mechanical copies for pop idol fans, and clones of the dearly departed. There is even talk that the naturalistic, even engaging, she-droids may be taken up as men as partners in the not-too-distant future. Android Asuna was a star attraction at Tokyo Designers’ Week showcase earlier this month and she is one of a series of geminoids, as their inventor dubs them, that are ripe for commercialisation say their creator robotics professor Hiroshi Ishiguro.
