Denmark’s first Geminoid

Denmark’s first Geminoid to be presented at Aalborg University On May 16th, Associate Professor Henrik Scharfe at Aalborg University will present the first Caucasian geminoid in the world. A geminoid is a robot, designed to be an exact copy of a living human being. The geminoid is remotely controlled through a computer system that allows the robot to mimic movements of an operator. Dr. Henrik Scharfe is the first European to model for a geminoid. The robot appears as an exact copy right down to details like stubbles, eye color and shoe size. Geminoid-DK – the official name of the robot – has already attracted some attention across the world, and video clips from the designated YouTube channel has been viewed more than 4 million times in a matter of few weeks. Check out the video below.
