Get Your Own Doppleganger


For the very shallow, Japan's Sogo & Seibu Department Store is offering two custom built humanoid robots that will resemble their owners. Built by Kokoro, the robot will have similar face, body, hair, eyes, facial expressions and upper body movements. It will also have speech based on recordings of the owner's voice. Only two are being offered at a price of ¥20.1 million yen ($223,000) each.
