robotBBC News reports that Japanese scientists have unveiled their most authentic-looking android yet (read about it here). Her name is Repliee Q1. She is the one without the glasses.
Apparently, she appears so realistic that her creators are convinced she could pass for a human, at least for a short time. I presume that means until someone offers to buy her a drink. Or asks her name, for that matter.
One criticism of the article though; never quote the Mr. Japanese scientist word for word.
“Repliee Q1 can interact with people. It can respond to people touching it. It’s very satisfying, although we obviously have a long way to go yet.”
Tee hee.
