Geminoid F: The Ultimate Fembot

April 14th, 2010 2 comments

Regular readers of this blog know that I am a fan of all robots. Today the spotlight is on a robot of a very different variety.

The wizards at Intelligent Robotics lab at Osaka University and Kokoro Co. Ltd. have joined forces and created the Geminoid F, a female robot that is amazingly lifelike. She is modeled after a twenty-something Japanese woman. Can you tell who is who in the pic above? Click on the full story for the answer. The “F” stands for female. My buddy Gemini should get a kick out of her name.

In Ghost in the Shell, we see plenty of androids that look, think, and feel just like real humans. Are we one step closer to that reality?

It’s too bad she doesn’t transform. Then she would be both practical and entertaining. Botcon organizers should try to get their hands on one and have her greet Botcon goers. I think all TransFans would get a kick out of seeing her.

At $110,000 a piece, the Geminoid F does not come cheap. I like to see some online retailers start taking pre-orders for her. For the hardcore collector only. I wouldn’t mind having a few of these for the carpool lane. And to answer the burning question of all lonely TransFans everywhere… she does not do laundry. What were you thinking?

Geminoid F… Transform and Roll Out!
