42-year-old Hong Kong resident Ricky Ma has spent a year and a half of his life plus $50,000 to create a freakishly life-like robot prototype, The Mirror reported. While Mark 1 is the official name for his bot, it should be programmed to respond to Scarlett because the robot is the spitting image of the Hollywood star. At least when it comes to her facial expression, at least. Her feet are undoubtedly robot feet.
When complimented on her looks, Robo-hansson can say "Hehe, thank you" or contort her silicone skin into a wink, thus providing a reminder that this is not a real woman.
Kudos to May for creating such an uncanny look-alike. His robot looks more like Johansson than Madame Tussaud's wax figure of the actress:
And when compared to the real Scarlett Johansson, the resemblance is creepy AF.
With the creation of Robo-hansson, aka Mark 1, it's starting to look like Phase 2 of the robot takeover is underway.
