Creepy Robot Baby Gets Even Creepier Face

Machine Perception Lab has created a giant robot baby. It is creepy as hell and now it has a face, which makes it down right scary.

“Named Diego-san, it’s an exaggerated representation of a one-year-old child that stands 4 feet 3 inches tall (130 cm) and weighs 66 pounds (30 kg). Its body consists of 44 pneumatic joints and its head contains about 27 moving parts. And as the video shows, its facial expressions are unbelievably life-like.

In order to simulate the reactions of a real child, Diego-san has had high definition cameras implanted in its eyes, allowing it to see people, gestures, and expressions. Then, through the use of an AI modeled on human babies, it can “learn” from people in the same way that real baby does.”
