Robot Inventor Clones Self

 - Oct 18, 2006   Updated: Apr 26 2011
Robot inventor Zou Renti has cloned himself as a robot. His robot, also names Zou Renty resides within a silica gel body that enables his face to move and talk like a real human. The robot has been on display at the 2nd Museum Expo in the China Agricultural Exhibition Center.

Implications - It really is eerie how uncannily lifelike Zou Renti's robot really is, but that only makes his invention all the more impressive. In fact, his revolutionary design raises the possibility that the day when robots interact with humans on a daily basis might not be very far away. Looking at this trend reminds me of Harrison Ford in "Blade Runner."
