Geminoid-DK Human-Realistic Robot
The Geminoid-DK is a tele-operated Android made to appear as an exact copy of its master, Asc. Professor Henrik Scharfe of Aalborg University.

Face Morphing Robot
The creepy robot called Waseda-Docomo or WD-2 uses a unique technology to alter its expression and remaind us the liquid metal robot from Terminator 2, when
it morphs to look like a security guard.
There is a 3-D scanner and projector located in the rear of the machine that copies the texture, skin tone and even hair style of people watching it . After this process, the robot can then match your every movement on the fly, while speaking, laughing, yelling, anything. link | via
