Over the years, the Japanese have always tried to create a human robot, and currently they are already getting close. In this article I will leave some videos showing a little about the advancement of robotics in Japan.

We will focus only on android nodes (robots with human appearance). We will notice several videos showing a little of how Androids were presented, and how their advancement in technology, in terms of speech and movement, is.

It is worth remembering that one of the ways to designate a robot in female form is actually gynoid.

Asuna is a robot with more human movements, which was introduced in 2014 and 2015, showing a great advance in robotics. Although it is still not completely realistic, and sometimes even scary, we can see in the dialogue below, its ability to answer questions, with ease and even make confirmations in an informal way…

In the dialogue, the Japanese asks her name, she answers and even says her age. When Japanese says: 18 years old? She also confirms: “juugosai Dayo” this has already caught my attention.

She was also presented at a fair in February 2015 a little differently.

We see that his appearance resembles a persocon that is part of an anime chobits.

Robot that sings and dances

The female robot HRP-4C featured in the videos below is capable of Singing and Dancing.
