Incredible human-like robots already exist in Japan
Japan continues to make new advances in life-like robots. These robots look almost human, and they may even work as receptionists, newsreaders, and more. How were they made to look so human-like? Do you think androids will ever live among humans?
This video shows how they created a human-like android. It starts with taking a cast of a real person. A special type of silicon is used to replicate human skin. The robot is programmed to move facial skins to mimic human senses and emotions. In the video, you'll see a human next to her look-alike android and find them almost indistinguishable.
