Human-Like Robot Actor Performs In Play (Video)
The Geminoid F performed in the Japanese play "Sayonara" alongside a human actor.
Geminoid F, a human-like robot, has just premiered in a Japanese play Sayonara alongside a live actor. It was developed by famous Tokyo based robot maker Hiroshi Ishiguro, who is also known for having created a robotic version of himself. The motions of the android actor were controlled from behind the scene during the 20 minute play.
Fellow actress Bryerly Long describes her experience:
“I kind of feel like I am alone. There is a is a bit of a distance as the robot has quite a particular position. It has a voice but it has not the same kind of human presence.”
