On the creation of realistic-looking androids and winodow is not as many engineers and organisations.

One of the most famous of enthusiasts in this field — Professor, Osaka University Hiroshi Ishiguro, who participated in the creation of several humanoid robots and even made the Android copy. Now, the Japanese engineer has published materials relating to its new project — Android named Ibuki (Ibuki).
This humanoid robot with the face of a boy of ten, who has a pair of arms and a wheeled platform for asymmetric wheels, so the robot is in motion sways a bit, simulating how the human body moves when walking.
