Hiroshi Ishiguro's Doppleganger


This just in: Japanese roboticist Hiroshi Ishiguro cloned himself. The robot is named Geminoid HI-1, and it talks and acts like a person. According to Wired, "Ishiguro, whose job is teaching at Osaka University, an hour's drive away, designed Geminoid so he could "robot in" to his classes and skip the commute."

Ishiguro is known as part of the team that designed the uber-creepy "Actroid" android receptionists. My question is this: What music is it listening to?


My guess: Kraftwerk.
