Make It Stop: Woman Talks To Her Robot Doppelganger

January 5, 2016

This is a video of professor Nadia Thalmann talking to her look-alike robot. She looks pretty life-like, but her speech and movement leave something to be desired, provided you desire a robot that can pass as human. The robot will serve as a receptionist at Singapore's Nanyang Technological University, and presumably stare off into space like she is in the screencap whenever you try talking to her. Hey -- I'm over here. Now for the last time, where's the restroom before I pee on the floor.

Keep going for a short video.

Thanks to Jeffrey S, who has absolutely zero interest in meeting his robot doppelganger.
