These Human Robots Will Haunt Your Nightmares
Japanese robot expert Hiroshi Ishiguro unveiled female cyborgs at the National Museum of Merging Science and Innovation. They will be on display for visitors to interact with. Ishiguro’s robotics are the latest confirmation of the uncanny valley hypothesis, which posits that humans find discomfort when robotic and animated humans approach a natural human appearance. Ishiguro—who’s previously designed his own doppelgänger robots—hopes that robots will soon become a part of everyday life in Japan.
