The Albert HUBO is a humanoid robot built in 2005 by the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology
. It has a voice synthesizer and voice recognition technology, and also has advanced vision sensors.
And it has Albert Einstein's head!
Why would you spend all that money on a robot, only to inflict upon it the ugliest animatronic head ever created? Plus, the two independently moving eyes really freak us out.
Worse still, if technology keeps developing, the HUBO could actually become a realistic post-death scenario one day.
Call us crazy, but surely life wouldn't be worth living if you were attached from the neck down to a giant, unbalanced iPod?
