Osaka University brings us CB2, the most unnerving looking android in recent memory. CB2 is designed to mimic the behavior, facial expressions and speech patterns of a human child of 1-2 years, while simultaneously haunting the dreams of all who gaze upon it’s eerie countenance. CB2 houses a camera that will monitor it’s environment and try to match up appropriate expressions and, eventually, simple sentences. Just pity the poor kid who has to be watched by this thing for the next two years as the frightening bastard tries to learn to be a real boy.
And for more terrible nightmares, be sure to check out an earlier iteration of the same technology on display below.
