Geminoids the almost-human robots

A geminoid robot is a robot that is made specifically to mimic the appearance of a human being, the goal of course is to make a robot that is so similar to a real person that you couldn't tell them apart.

There are a few impressing geminoids out there, the latest being the Geminoid DK, in fact if you were to look at a still picture of him you probably wouldn't see it was just a machine in a human costume. That is, if it wasn't a close up.

So far though, all doubts wether they are real persons or not are dismissed as soon as they start to move.
