Geminoid F - the latest singing fembot

Hiroshi Ishiguro, a renowned robot designer at Osaka University in western Japan, has created the last fembot called Geminoid F. Geminoid F can smile, furrow her brows and move her mouth - although she often looks rather dazed. It can also talk and sing - playing recordings, or 'mouthing' other people's voices. Geminoid TMF is equipped with 12 motorised actuators, powered by air pressure, which allow her to 'copy' human facial expressions.

Internet users has responded that Geminoid F is not strictly a robot; It is a sophisticated dummy, remotely controlled by a computer operator. It is not capable of independant actions or responses. Scientists may have come a long way in robotics, but they are still a long way from developing a true android.
