Over the years, the Japanese have always tried to create a human robot, and today they are already getting close. In this article I will leave some videos showing a little about the advance of robotics in Japan.
We will focus only on Androids (Robots with human appearances). We will notice several videos showing a little of how Android was presented, and how it is advancing in technology, in terms of speech and movement.
Remember that one of the ways to designate a robot in the female form is actually gynoid.

We see that its appearance resembles a persocon that is part of an anime chobits.
Robot singing and dancing
The HRP-4C female robot presented in the videos below is capable of Singing and Dancing.
That way the vocaloids soon come to life.
That was some videos I found, to give an idea of how Androides are advancing in Japan. What do you think? Will it still take them a long time to build a more humane robot?
