Freaky baby robots

20 Jan

These are terrifying and some of the images show slightly questionable poses – in fact to be honest they scare me to a ridiculous extent, it is like Island of the Dolls in 2050!

This terrifying beast is “Diego-san” who was designed to help researchers study how infants develop motor skills during the first year of life.

In “addition to providing clues about how infants interact with the physical world, researchers will also use the robot to explore how babies acquire and refine the ability to use nonverbal communication such as gestures and facial expressions”.

Could they not have just studied a real baby or is that just me?..
