Albert Hubo Robot

There’s not much of a back-story, but CNET News.com has the creepiest picture that you are likely to see today or any day for that matter. The photo, taken this morning at a Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum, shows a model, clearly under duress, shaking hands with a robot that has the head of Albert Einstein grafted onto the body of a Hubo robot. I’m sure this image will haunt my dreams in the nights to come, and I blame the robot’s creator, the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.
