Japanese scientists went and made a robot that looks like young girl. The robot Repliee R-1 looks like a five year old girl except for being freaky looking and covered in silicone skin. Few people are fooled into thinking she's real but it was made to be life-like to put people's mind at ease. I imagine something like, "Ahh! It's a Terminator robot! Oh thank goodness no, it's just a creepy looking five year old girl robot. That's not twisted at all and my mind is completely at ease now." The robot blinks and stands and wears clothes. The robot will be used for the elderly and the disabled and the article says it will also fetch objects.
