Japanese android clone channels the spirit of Al Pacino with creepy perfection

If you're a movie buff and you've ever wondered what the android version of Al Pacino would look like, the Geminoid DK will fulfill your wish with creepily realistic effectiveness.

Created by Kokoro to look like Professor Henrik Scharfe of Aalborg University in Denmark, the Geminoid DK is currently undergoing further testing and development at Japan's Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International. That fact that the android looks just like Pacino from the side is just a cool bonus point. Before looking at the video below of the android in action, we suggest you sit down, take a deep breath, and try to remember that there's still magic and importance in being an actual flesh and blood human--for now.
