Intriguing piece at PopSci.com about a new generation of humanoid robot. Below is a brief video of the robot in action. A little uncanny how human it seems at times. The picture at right shows the robot “undressed” (left) and dressed (right). There has been some discussion about how much life-likeness people will take before it is creepy. (Some blame the flopping of The Polar Express on the animation having crossed that line.) Will we someday be interacting with robots like this?
