Toshiba's ChihiraAico Humanoid Robot

What's better than a humanoid robot that can "sing" like John Denver? Toshiba’s ChihiraAico humanoid robot is designed to resemble a 32-year-old Japanese hostess that makes conversation, sings and could one day play classical music or take care of people with dementia. ChihiraAico uses 43 pneumatic actuators for its movements, including 24 in its shoulders, arms and hands and 15 in the face. She can move her hands and communicate in Japanese sign language. She can also be happy, irritated or sad – and even cry.
