We last mentioned Dorian, the Japanese robot programmed with seven distinctly terrifying expressions, way back in 2009. Since then, he's been upgraded to be funny, and we now have actual footage of Dorian in action. Even though the robot is "joking," you may never goddamned laugh again.
Total apologies to Probo the Belgian molest-bot: This new emotional robot from Japan is much creepier. Forget the Uncanny Valley: Waseda University's KOBIAN, programmed with seven expressions, is the Bottomless Pit Of Do Not Want. Images by AP.
