MOSCOW — “Sarah Connor… I’ll be back.” Uh-oh! Them Eastern Europeans are at it again. Tech-nerds in Russia recently unveiled the world’s first autonomous Promobot android called “Robo-C” and the automaton is expected to replace humans in the workplace in the near future. The humanoid can be manufactured to resemble any person (including you), so it’s sort of like an android clone. Robo-C is also equipped with an artificial intelligence system that contains more than 100,000 speech modules. The robot is capable of performing a variety of workplace tasks such as providing customer service, answering questions and accepting payments. Several companies across the globe are in the process of purchasing Robo-C which promises to catapult you and I to the unemployment line.

“We analyzed the needs of our customers and there was a demand,” said Promobot co-founder and development director Oleg Kivokurtsev. “But, of course, we started the development of an anthropomorphic robot a long time ago, since in robotics there is the concept of the ‘Uncanny Valley,’ and the most positive perception of the robot arises when it looks like a person. Now we have more than 10 orders from companies and private clients from around the world.”

Should Robo-C be legal?

  1. Wow! It actually looks like a real person … that was stung in the face by several bees!

    So, in essence, real-life robot technology today has arrived where 3D facial animation was 15-20 years ago. Huh.

  2. Nice effort, but they are still in the uncanny valley. The eyes are unrealistic and their expressions are exaggerated. Subtle facial expressions are often conveyed through mouth movement, here the lips are still very rigid.

  3. The Russian must have not see the Will smith movie were robots take over the world

  4. Shit like this should be illegal. It serves the community or country no benefit to be able to profit off of a community and then instead of that corporation hire humans it hires robots which they don’t have to pay…

  5. We have had those robots since ages – in our governments 🙄

  6. If this had been possible when my husband was killed I’d have bought one that looked like him, just so I could see his face and sort of hug him again

  7. The saying, “the eyes are the window to the soul” is a lot more interesting after seeing this thing. No matter how life-like they make it, one look into its eyes and you can tell there’s no real life in there.

  8. That robot can have my job and I will stay home and collect unemployment

  9. what kind of battery does it use? will we be able to pull the plug if it gets out of line?

  10. Why does anyone want a human-like robot? I’d rather just have a cool looking robot instead.

  11. What nonsense! Let me tell you this,If Robots were to take the people’s jobs there would be the biggest and one of the most brutal Revolutions mankind has seen yet.Sure if they we’re to take a few IMPORTANT jobs like Enginnering, Science Etc that wouldn’t be a problem.If they were to take jobs of regular people that would lead to endless Revoultion.
