The below video is from NOW TV’s promotion of Westworld airing on their platform. The video shows Engineered Art‘s ‘Fred’ who chats to members of the public. When talking about a robot invasion however, he ‘malfunctions’ and begins smashing glasses much to their dismay. Touted as an ultra-realistic robot, based on actor Tedroy Newell, I’m pretty sure I’d figure out pretty quickly this was a real human.
I always look into the eyes of the people I speak to and I’d notice these lifeless pupils as soon as he said hello. But then again, this is London after all. London, where you’ll get stabbed for looking in the wrong direction. I’ll stay up North.
It’s only a matter of time though before they make ultra-realistic sex dolls. Because let’s face it, this is the only reason we’re advancing robotics research.
Keep going for the video and then a behind the scenes look.
