Dozens of people mistake robot for real woman – and they think she’s ‘sexy’

A robot has been created that is so life-like it fooled one-in-two people into thinking it was a real human.

But not only has the lifelike device been mistaken for a real person – she’s also been deemed ‘sexy’ by those who have seen her.

Named Actroid F, the 5ft 6in machine looks like a human being, blinks, responds to eye contact and recognises body language.

Robots are being built that look more and more convincing so researcher Dr David Silvera-Tawil wanted to find out if Geminoid F can be told apart from an actual person.
