Is this the droid you’re looking for?

For now, she’s simply “Geminoid F”:

Geminoid F

Japanese roboticist Hiroshi Ishiguro unveiled today his latest creation: a female android called Geminoid F. The new robot, a copy of a woman in her 20s with long dark hair, can laugh, smile, and exhibit other facial expressions more naturally than Ishiguro’s previous androids.

Ishiguro, a professor at Osaka University, is famous for creating a robot replica of himself, the Geminoid HI-1, a teleoperated android that he controls remotely. The new Geminoid F (“F” stands for female) is also designed to be remote controlled by an operator.

Bet she is, say no more, say no more, say no more.

Incidentally, the android is the one on the left.

    I want one. I’d let it field the random telemarketer calls and fill in for me at family gathering.

    I’d use mine to help me on my projects. Of course, this’ll put the undergrads out of work…

    Oh, hey, I could send mine to meetings while I hide out in my lab and actually get work done.
