See this girl?

You probably had to do a double take, because that is a fully poseable Silicon Doll.

And if that’s not realistically creepy enough for you, look; her face is poseable also!

Come 2015 SHE WILL EVEN BE ABLE TO TALK WALK AND MAKE YOU SANDWICHES. Who knows? One may be in your School, Work, or even home already!

TRUST NOBODY

Might I move this to General?
 
Also, the second image is the same doll?! That’s…
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
…Unreal.

But, still, how much do you think it’ll cost feel like a real woman be able to have some form of real emotional behavior or feelings?

>implying real women aren’t emotionless, cruel creatures

Hahahahahahahaimsolonely
 
But really. Natsuru, can you confirm the second image isn’t a model from which the doll was made or something? I tried to find more information through Google, but I was fairly unsuccessful at a quick attempt.

[EXPLICATIVE] Representative Female Unit, this Unit’s Optical Scans detect a margin of superior form in comparison to the mean of similar models.

Inform this Unit as to your Analysis of the Plan of Action of you and this Unit relocating to an area of lesser observation ease.

I dug where I started (thick walls of Kanji, my weakness), and found that it was indeed just the model for the doll matched up to the doll itself. The eyes, eyelids, and jaw on the doll are poseable, but not the cheek or forehead muscles.

But it’s still creepy to think that we may have a doll that can pose it’s face soon…

Star Wars mandated that robots in the future would be clearly mechanic, unnatural and talk in beeps and boobs…well Lucas was a terrible futurist

Other Sci-fi films such as A.I, Terminator and Aliens had predicted a much more accurate reality: We’re skipping the clunky tin cans and straight for Andoids that look exactly like us. Why? Because Bishop was the coolest fucking robot ever and we want one of those, that’s why. Were diving headfirst into uncanny valley with enthusiasm.

Androids that look, talk, walk and behave exactly like humans are a very real possibility coming in our lifetimes. Programmers are already creating responsive software A.I, film studio’s are already making lifelike synthetic skin textures, engineers are already manufacturing bipedal machines.

Pretty soon well add it all together and create Bicentennial man in one fell sweep…then being the typical humans we are…we’ll use them for sex.

Welcome to the future.

Exactly what I was thinking, bu-

Wait.

Verbose making a post with a massive gap in it?

That’s…

Even more unreal…

But seriously, I’ve heard about this already a few years ago, they’re also developing ‘virtual waifus’ on tablets that track your movements and such. There’s a video for it somewhere, but I don’t know if I can find it again.

That second picture looks too realistic and I want surefire proof (How am I even going to get that anyway?), do you have an article link or something, Natsuru?

Natsuru said that the second image (person) was the model for the first image (doll).

Also, shush, Quantum.

Unless science gives us robots capable of producing human children. Or robot children. Or some combination of the two. I want a cyborg baby.

Because an Article Was Requested

These have been around for a long time indeed, and they also cost around 6000 Dollars (3000 Pounds, 600,000 Yen).

Not to mention that the doll I posted was an older one. The dolls from 2009 looked exactly like their models.

I can’t tell which one is the real one…

I’m going to guess the one on the right, which lacks skin blemishes.

Yup. It also has better arranged hair, a more unfocused gaze and pastier skin. If I hadn’t been told that one of them was a doll I wouldn’t have been able to tell, though.

Damn, that engine looks like a real money maker. I wonder where I can get the Dev Kit? n_n;;

I wonder if it could be combind with the same Hologram tech used in the Vocaloid Performances? Not only that, you could use an AI and Vocaloid in order to create a fully functional, learning computer program that will…

Yeah, I can see where this is going.

I’m actually not terribly interested in a basic one.

I’m thinking one that isn’t actually based on a human. Same basic body structure, though.

I’m thinking I might want one based on an asari.

Yeah…

My question is why it has to resemble anything organic. Why can’t I tenderly love the machine.

If you’re into that kind of thing, knock yourself out.

But I’m not. I’d rather have something a bit less… metallic.
