So there was this news today of the world’s first android newscaster which was unveiled. They do indeed look pretty real as you can see here:
I was thinking how business wise I don’t think we are ready for this kind of technology. For example, imagine going into a clothing store where we are used to seeing mannequins to model clothing items. Instead, you then see this life-like person that starts to move and talk. I think that would probably scare all the customers away.
Makes you think too where if it was like a grocery aisle in one of those self-checkout lanes would you rather see an android like this greet you or simply nothing at all? I suppose it will only be a matter of time until we see things like robotic taxi drivers and all.
