Leave it to Japan to decide first that people aren’t good enough to host the news, and it should be done by robots. Why? Come on. Japan thinks EVERYTHING should be done by robots, and it’s not like delivering news requires a decidedly human flair these days.
We get most of our news from crawlers and Tweets, so why not dress it up in a pseudo-human looking package as these scientists did?
Right now the robot/android/whatever will only be giving news to patrons of Japan’s National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, but she’s got what it takes to be on primetime, baby!
