“Robot” Actress Plays Robot in Japanese Play
Gemenoid-F made her stage debut this week in Tokyo, co-starring in a twenty minute play in the role of the android caretaker of a terminally ill girl.
For what it’s worth: If your robot is “completely controlled by a real-life human actress from a soundproof room behind the stage,” it’s not a robot. It’s a puppet. An animatronic puppet. Like this, and this, and this, and this.
We’ve had puppets for thousands of years. Calm down.
