Is That a Human or a Droid?

Japan is continuing to stay in the lead with the most creepy robots out there. IEEE Spectrum released an article showcasing Japan’s latest endeavor: the Geminoid DK. The robot is based off a real person, Associate Professor Henrik Scharfe of Denmark’s Aalborg University, and it’s sole purpose is to be the most realistic human robot ever. The robot does not have any artificially intelligence, so there are no worries of it taking over the world. Instead, the robot is hooked up to the subject and its features are remotely controlled through motion capture. Be sure to check out the full article here for plenty of pictures and several videos of the Geminoid DK.
