Dopplegangers For Sale

robot_dopplegangerFor about $223,000 you can get a robotic clone of yourself.  It will have a face just like yours and the creators will even match the robots voice to yours.  Why would anyone want this you ask?  Well, it could fill in at work for you…

The robot will be made by Kokoro, the same company that makes Actroid.

Only 2 robots will be made in a special New Years promotion.  If you live in Japan, then head on over to a Sogo, Seibu or Robinson’s department store on January 1 – 3 to spend all of your money.

Click through for an interview with Hiroshi Ishiguro, the creator of these robots and the man in the photo.
