Here she is Erica, a beautiful robot from Japan

Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University, Japan, re-introduced the beautiful android robot increasingly similar to humans. The female robot named Erica.

Unlike the previous Ishiguro robot design, Erica is not only designed to pamper the eyes, but also ear of the Android lovers. Yes, Ishiguro has improved the ability to speak of his android robot, as well as body language while speaking.

As quoted from Mashable on Wednesday, August 12, 2015, Ishiguro tries to eliminate the awkwardness that comes when humans communicate with robots. Although still looks stiff to human standards, but Erica when demonstrated in front of the journalists does look more similar to humans.

She could blink, head tilt, have motion on the facial skin that reflects the emotions, moving her lips, and body language that follows the style of speech. Even the android robot can also be muttering "uuuunnnn?", A non-verbal communication, which means "really?" that commonly used in Japan.

Erica is the result of collaboration between the Japan Science and Technology Agency, Osaka University, the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International (ATR) and Kyoto University.
Currently Erica, the beautiful android robot increasingly similar to humans, is being exhibited at Miraikan National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo, Japan. (Meet Asuna). *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MASHABLES]
