Ms. Roboto

Robotics has come a long way -- perhaps too long a way? When robots start looking, acting, dancing, and even singing just like humans, the line gets blurred. What is cool to some is downright creepy to others. Still, Japan's Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology took it all one step further by featuring a song and dance routine where the lead singer/performer was HRP-4C, a robot that can mimic human vocal patterns, movements, and facial expressions.
