Clone Ranger

Sounds Like Me, Looks Like Me

A Japanese toy company is offering to make tailor-made robot Mini-Me versions of its customers, even replicating the sound of their voice. Customers submit a photo of the person they'd like their new toy to resemble. The dolls can be taught to sound like the person via an in-built microphone, a computer and voice recognition software.

No thanks...I have two of similar models already (and a third in production) - they repeat everything I say and continually trash The Heights!

Leave it to Japan.

I know someone who would actually love something like this. Sad but true.
