CE is the home of the world’s most realistic android. This robot – the Geminoid-DK – plays a key role in the effort to understand how we react to humanoid technology.

Within recent years, we have witnessed a significant development in robotic enterprise. Robots are no longer reserved for tedious work at assembly lines and in agriculture, but rather, we see a number of robots designed specifically for social interaction with humans. A strong example of this is the so-called Geminoids or twin robots: Tele-operated androids designed to exactly resemble living human beings. Geminoid-DK is the first of its kind outside Japan and is used to investigate successful conditions for communication between humans and robots. More about the project.
