Scarlett Johansson Robot DTF

josh-j - April 4, 2016

Engineer Ricky Ma has created a functioning robot that looks a shit ton like Scarlett Johansson. It's unclear if the robot has any utilitarian purpose or if Ma is just showing off the fact that he's Asian. If you can't imagine why a lonely servo motor nerd would build a life size Scarlett robot that obeys his every command , it's time to break out your Tori Amos cassette and a box cutter. Ma's first commands enable the robot to wink and flex its left-handed grip with an up-and-down motion. Just so we're all on the same page here.

When you strip away the sizzle, Ma's Scarlett is pretty lame so far as 2016 state of the art robots. Take a close look at the mouth. The lips don't match what Robo ScarJo is saying. Do you want to hear electronic hydraulics when she opens wide? Tell me again about the psi impact of a circuit malfunction of my hummer. Ma's lab must be one fucked up bunker filled with android sex dolls. Forget Fritzl. This guy scares robots into self-awareness. It's the new Turing test.
