  • The Japanese continue to roll out new robot technology without any interference by the UN or more importantly, America. Today, Japanese scientists proudly show off their newest creation, the CB2.

    CB2 stands for Child Robot with Biomimetic Body. That’s a fancy way for saying ‘it will learn like a baby learns’.

    If you walk around a room, its eyes will follow you. If you put an object in its close views of focus, it will track that object and eventually try to reach out for it.

    It will also be designed to recognize a human face and intently watch facial expressions, so in time it can be built to mimic (and respond to sounds) associated with each expression. That is as unnatural as you can get, so of course this is wrong on many levels. Let’s have a look.
