Otonaroid and floating screen

Otonaroid (adult android) is a almost photo-realistic android invented by the professor of Osaka University Hiroshi Ishiguro. The body skin is made of silicons and it moves with artificial muscles (compressed air). It blinks, moves its arms, hands and fingers. It even speaks like a real woman. Next to the Otonaroid, there is a floating screen. But how can an image be displayed in the air ? In fact, the image is shrinking to a focal point. Beyond the focal point, the image starts to be enlarged. That’s why it seems the image is floating in the air. In this district, you can find robot show room as well. What is more interesting…this floating screen works a kind of touch screen and you can “click” by touching it. These devices provide us unique experience and a little bit strange feelings LOL.
