Robot Infant

I can’t decide if it is super adorable or super creepy.

Osaka University is developing a lifelike baby sized robot called Affetto.  The little robot’s key goal is to study the effects that humans have toward a robot that looks just like a human as opposed to one does not.  Soft silicone and actuators combine to give Affetto the ability to mimic a wide variety of complex human child expressions.

What do you think?  Creepy or Cute?
