A Russian company has launched a line of human-like robots that can be made to order with any appearance. They are so lifelike that they are able to copy human expressions by moving their eyes, eyebrows, mouths and “other muscles”, and are able to answer questions, and serve as a “companion”, according to the company. Promobot, the company which developed the “Android Robo-C” says that their human-like robot has over 600 facial expressions, and features specially-developed skin. The company says the bots could be used for “professional or personal use” and as a suggestion, they threw it out there that they could create a Michael Jordan replica to sell basketball uniforms in a store, or a William Shakespeare-bot which could read the playwright’s works in a museum.
