Up until now, even the most sophisticated robots are easily distinguishable from a mile away, but the Geminoid-F humanoid robot is a dramatic cut above the competition.
Designed by Hiroshi Ishiguro of ATR, the Geminoid-F humanoid robot sports hair, skin and even eyes that are so similar to a real human's that it is scary -- especially to those of us who have seen the Terminator, Blade Runner or the Matrix.
With that being said, Hiroshi's achievement with the Geminoid-F humanoid robot is impossible to deny and the invention remains, as of yet, benign. In fact, it opens up the very real possibility that the day when robots are nearly indistinguishable from humans is closer than ever.
