Babyloid is just plain creepy

by



There are a few things that you need to know about Japan – it has been in recession for the longest time, banks don’t pay interest, it has been the 2nd largest economy in the world for eons before China took over that mantle, and “boasts” of the world’s oldest society since 20% of the population is at least 65 years old. Well, apart from that, how about something more cheerful, like it is the top robot nation in the world?

The Babyloid is a new type of welfare robots which was designed to look like that of an infant, tipping the scales at 2.2kg while measuring 44cm in length. Nice to know it doesn’t poop and you need not change diapers on this little fellow, but it does come with a movable mouth, arms and eyelids for an added touch of reality. This robot can also simulate certain human emotions such as crying in order to trigger an emotional responses in users. Prototypes are currently being built for use in trials at nursing homes, so they are still some ways off from a commercial release.

There is thing creepy about a baby robot. I find it more creepy seeing a little girl playing with baby infant dolls… Babies with babies- now that is truly creepy and disturbing.
