This robot doesn't look right…

An elderly man communicates with his granddaughter via the new humanoid robot

Here’s Japanese robot innovator Hiroshi Ishiguro’s latest creation, the Telenoid R1. Note it’s almost complete lack of human like features, which make it 50% more likely to give your child nightmares as he or she uses it to communicate with you when you are out of town.

I particularly enjoy the sassy arms-on-hips position, except then I realized it’s really just truncated limbs that make the robot look like your typical Oliver Twist-era factory kid.
