I think this story is nothing new nowadays, robots are used in many ways such as a dog robot for a replacement of fun things to entertain elderly or mentally handicapped people, but isn't this picture attached with the article fraud? It seems to me that the picture is made up to build certain ill image of Japan on purpose...
anyway, it's sooo scary that some of the children would refuse to enter the class...
Robots are merely heartless machines. so, why do they need to copy appearance of human beings?
