Here we have a portrait of Mr. Zou Renti of the Xi’an Supermen Sculpture Institution and his robot clone at the 2006 China Robot Expo at the International Convention Center in Beijing. They’ve come by to show off the robot’s silica gel skin and lifelike features (and that he’s basically a party droid). He walks, he talks, he bobbles his head sympathetically, he stands still really well. (If you’re still confused about which is the man and which is the robot, there’s a hint after the jump.) [GT]

Surprise, the man’s the one who feels comfortable sticking his finger in the robot’s ear. Seriously though, the Japanese are doing crazy stuff with robots these days. If they invent one that can blog, we’re all out of luck.
