I Robot - Robot mimics human speech and gestures.
Japanese researchers have unveiled a robot that can mimic speech and gestures sent to it by video-phone, replicating a distant caller's presence.
Dubbed the Telenoid R1, the robot will allow "people to feel as if an acquaintance in the distance is next to you", according to its developers, Osaka University and the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute.
A sensor will transmit the caller's sounds and movements of the head, face and arms to a robot near the recipient, the developers said.
