I Can't Listen to This Creepy Robot Head Sing Her Head Off

Floating singing lips are creepy but seeing a robotic head with dark soul sucking eyes (that double as cameras) try to sing might be just as bad. Especially when she's horribly shrieky and a little too realistic.

Developed by Chyi-Yeu Lin, the robot head can look at a sheet of music with her eye-cameras and then extract the "pitch, rhythm, and lyrics from that image". She translates that info, sends it to a voice synthesizer and belts out the song. Watch her sing her head off here:
