If you find yourself un-freaked out by ordinary life, you need a super realistic human robot, like the Repliee Q1. The Repliee Q1 sets the standard in the the world of robotic realism, and in addition to her looks, she can do stuff. ;)

A recent article by the Associated Press revealed that this bot can react naturally to many emotions, "It can block an attempted slap, for example. But it's the little, “unconscious” movements that give the robot its eerie verisimilitude: the slight flutter of the eyelids, the subtle rising and falling of the chest, the constant, nearly imperceptible shifting so familiar to humans."
