Video: Three Lifelike Humanoids Sit Down For a Chat With Their Human Counterparts

Geminoid Summit

What's creepier than three of the world's most lifelike Geminoid robots sitting around a table having a conversation? If you answered three of the world's most lifelike Geminoid robots sitting around a table having a conversation with the flesh-and-blood humans they were designed to emulate, we invite you to test your hypothesis via the video below.

Meeting at ATR in Nara last month, the three robots didn't have too terribly much to say to one another. But seated next to their bantering real-life counterparts, this Geminoid summit compounds the strange sensation usually triggered by seeing a robot that is difficult to distinguish from a human.
