HUMAN ROBOT GUIDES

Very interesting Elizabeth.   These robotic systems are a little spooky--too life-like for me.  You are certainly correct in that the Japanese have experimented and developed these systems to be much more in line with human features than any other country.  They really have the upper hand here.  I think this is a fascinating direction they have chosen with the technology and I would hope have specific goals in mind; i.e. replacing humans when and where possible.  Excellent post.

Those are definitely out of my comfort zone. Data on Star Trek I can handle, but I would rather see these as robotic rather than human. We have been talking a lot about robotic dogs (my husband thinks they would be ideal - no shedding and no eating or tearing things up) but there is no way I would ever consider one - my German Shepherd provides not only physical protection but interacts with me on an emotional level that even if can be emulated by a robotic dog - would never be a satisfying substitution.

Thanks Charles. I guess i missed it earlier when it was posted. Anyhow it is quite impressive. Now i wonder that if he had this much detail in 2011, we should have robots walking among us by now.

The videos I have see have not impressed me.  Physically, they seem about as life-like as Disney's animatronic figures from the late 60's.  I know some of the Disney rides have less advanced figures, but some did reach to a higher level.

Thanks for the blast from the past Charles. Looking at the two slide shows really helps us see how far things have come along in a short time.

Humanoid Robots Get Real

In 2011, we did a slideshow of humanoid robots. Check out Slide 5 of that slideshow. It's another example of a robot that looks eerily human.
