Black and White

Standard

We have weekly challenge too at Kampret. This week’s challenge is black and white photography. I rarely take BW photos so I did some digital editing to some of my collections. I used GIMP to convert them into BW. Desaturate, adding some contrast and there…

Geminoid F, The Beautiful Lifelike Robot

Standard

The crowd

Cityplaza Taikoo Shing held an event on March 29 till April 15 2012, called Robot In Motion. They displayed many tiny robots in that event but the main star was Geminoid F.

“”Geminoid F is developed by Prof. Hiroshi Ishiguro,  Father of Modern Japanese Robotic. ‘Born” in 2010, Geminoid F looks extraordinarily like human being and represents the most intelligent generation of robots to date. She can, not only simulate the human voice when talking and singing, but also express herself with up to 65 delicate human expressions.”” (It’s from the leaflet :D)

When I first saw the crowd surrounded a lady in red dress singing on the stage, I thought a female singer from Japan came to sing in an event. I’ve always been into the music so I went  down to the crowd to look closer to see who the lady was.

I was so surprised to find out that the lady wasn’t real. It’s a singing robot! OK, I, then, waited till she finished singing. I even came closer to the stage. She looked around, smiled, blinked and spooked the shoot outta me. She looked really spooky when she turned her head around and smiled!!!! Alright, now the fun part, taking pictures 🙂 Enjoy!

She looks real. Well, she's a real robot
