Ricky Ma, 42, is an inventor from Hong Kong, that managed to create a robot, with it's face based on a Hollywood actress, and when you look at it you can see that it highly resembles the actress Scarlett Johansson.
Ricky's robot speaks full sentences, but he is not satesfied enough and want's to make the robot even smarter, more human-like and wants to give it even more facial expressions.
This robot already is capable of answering to "i love you" and "your so beautiful" with smiles and thanks.
When asked why he did it he said:
“When I was a child, I liked robots. After I grew up, I wanted to make one. But during this process, a lot of people would say things like, ‘Are you stupid? This takes a lot of money. Do you even know how to do it? It's really hard.’”
According to Reuters:
“Besides simple movements of its arms and legs, turning its head and bowing, Ma’s robot, which has dark blonde hair and liquid eyes, and wears a grey skirt and cropped top, can create detailed facial expressions.”
Ma intends to sell this (creepy) Robot to an investor in order to be able to make more robots. He does not say if he will base this other robot faces in Hollywood stars, just like he doesn't admit this is Scarlett's face. He says he photographed and videotaped the Johansson look-alike. Yeah, sure.
Let's just hope we don't get a Ex Machina type of ending here.
How weird must this be for Scarlet.. .
