Little Island Clones Robotically
This may be a little too close to home. Hiroaki Koike and his Little Island company make dolls in the likeness of their owners. They are equipped with interactive sensors, servos, LAN connections, cameras and microphones. At a height of about 40cm, the doll can be taught the voice of the original model. She/he can read you RSS feeds or place VOIP calls. Contact Little Island if you would like you or a loved one in his/her image. It will set you back about $2,215.00. While you are waiting, watch "Chucky" and consider if this is really something you want sitting next to you sharing popcorn.
