Japanese engineers have built this baby robot that can roll around, speak a few baby sounds and even walk if encouraged to. The baby robot can react to touch. It will also try and play with a toy if you give them one. Engineers are also hoping to write software to have this robot walk and talk like a 3-year-old.


This is freaky me out big time! Has anyone seen this? or posted this yet?

Great a baby you CAN kick into the corner to get it to shut up...

I have nothing against kids. really.

What exactly is the point of a giant baby robot?

The only thing creepy about this thing would be the type of people that would actually buy one.

That's a big baby. Haven't seen a 3 year old that big in a while, although I guess it's quite common in Europe and America ;)

whatever it costs it has to be cheaper than a real kid.

Its owner can say "I have a giant robot baby. And you don't".
