How About No?: Japan Unveils First Android Newscasters

android-newscasters.jpg

This is a short video of what a group of Japanese robot-loving scientists are calling the first android newscasters. Me? I'm calling them public enemies numbers 1 and 2. *pins their pictures to the wall with big red circles around their faces* Can somebody bring me some yarn? I want to make this look like a real detective's board. Man, how awesome would it be to turn on the news and see one of these robot's faces catch fire and start melting off? I am going to make that happen. But first -- a loooong trip to the men's room. Secretary, hold my calls. "For how long?" Indefinitely, I feel like this might be the shit that finally kills me.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to steve c, who agrees if they ever try to replace goofy local news weathermen with robots there will be hell to pay.

    I wish that they would make robots that look like friendly robots until they figure out how to deal with that uncanny valley.

    I love the subtitles that claim the robot has perfect language skills and a sense of humour...
