The bright folks at Hanson Robotics have done it again.
They can scan your head/face using a shophisticated
scanner, then they produce an exact duplicate of you.

Let's go a step further...they can equip it with your
voice, emotions and some of your memories, if desired.

Hanson can even create a full body with arms that move
showing gestures that accompany speech and emotions.

Check out the Humankind Custom Creation section at:

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!
