The Octavia Robot was recently introduced as the newest member of the United States Navy at fleet week in New York city. Octavia is designed to help ease soldiers into communicating with robots. Right...

The Octavia Robot is designed to mimic human facial expressions and speech as much as possible. The Octavia robot is a little creepy. But if it helps soldiers do their job better, I'm all for it. Check out the video above to see Octavia in all her/his creepy glory.
