If you thought that lifelike female robot Korea was working on was creepy, get a load of this. Hiroshi Ishiguro, a senior researcher at ATR Intelligent Robotics and Communication Laboratories in Japan, has created a robot that looks exactly like himself. Created using casts of his body, his robot doppelganger sits and fidgets, looks around and taps his toe just like his creator. Ishiguro actually created this robot to, no joke, fill in for him in the classroom at Osaka University, where he's a professor. By sending his voice through the robot from his home an hour away while wearing lip-sensors so the robot can replicate what he says, Ishiguro can redefine telecommuting. But why stop there? The possibilities are endless. Oh robot self, you were supposed to pick up the dry cleaning, not strangle everyone at the cleaners with your deadly iron grip! Robot self, I thought you were going to prepare dinner for my wife, not impregnate her with your killer robot spawn. You so crazy!
