Nurse Robot Actroid-F Gets a Brother and Upgraded Eyes

AIST in Japan has developed a male version of the Actroid-F android. The faces as well as the mechanics behind each robot are the same and the only difference is in the hair and makeup. “These human-like robots imitate the movements of the people they are watching, and are currently being placed as observers in hospitals to see how patients feel in their presence.” Cameras have now been placed in the retinas of the robots’ eyes, enabling them to direct their line of sight towards different subjects.
