    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...

    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.
