  1. But why? And why is Toshiba wasting money on this? Are they so flush with world beating products and cash that their engineers and designers have nothing better to do? If you are going to build robots at least build robots that can do something better, faster or at least more cheaply than a human. So you have created a very poor imitation of a human doing human things – what use is that to anyone?

  2. Looking at the hands, I suspect it’s rather a ladyboy :)

    Another show of Japan’s blatant lack of innovativeness, methinx. There would be so many great and wonderful possibilities for using bots, if only some creative minds were at the helm of things instead of teeth-sucking seat-farters. Sad.
