Japan has developed a robot that mimics the actions of a baby of 1-2 years of age.
The robot was designed to study child development.
The name is CB2, and scientists hope with time, the robot will age to a mental age of 3.
The study should be interesting but this robot gives me the chills, it is the creepiest looking thing and it stands at 4 feet tell, hardly a baby.
I would have nightmares it was coming to get me if I worked at the lab.
