Actroid pic and info from wikipedia here..
I bet when I say android almost everyone will easily understand what it is. Mostly we will understand it as a latest touch screen phone that hit the world since last year. Although actually android is a human robot in sci-fi movies. Because it’s a human robot, so robot like Asimo is not an android, it’s a robot.
In reality the famous existing android is located in Japan. They called it Actroid. This Actroid can be considered a celebrity in robot world. The actroid is created according to young Japanese lady look. Now the Actroid is here in Malaysia at Pusat Sains Negara, Bukit Kiara Kuala Lumpur. The exhibition is called encyclopedia of the actroid.
So if you want to know if this Actroid can replace human for doing certain jobs like teaching or house maid in 10 years time, please observe the actroid at Pusat Sains Negera until 8 March 2012 and then you can make the prediction…
