smitty777's Journal: Become Your Own Private Robotic Overlord: 20M Yen Android of Yourself

Journal by smitty777
Gizmag is reporting on a company in Japan that will create a "robotic dopplegager" of yourself. All you do is shell out a cool 20 M Yen, and they will create a robot that...well actually looks a lot like you. It's actually kind of uncanny to look at the picture from TFA - if you didn't know it was an article about robots, you would just assume that it was about twins or something.

So, I was thinking about the applications of having such an item on one's inventory. Of course, my nefarious mind immediately thought about security and deception. If you were a high ranking official, it might serve as a pretty convincing decoy. I wonder about the criminal element though. It might be possible to use such technology to establish an alibi during the commission of a crime? It would be easy to have someone take a picture or video of you and establish a false timeline. Hrmmm....maybe I've been watching too many episodes of CSI.
