OSAKA, April 3 (AP) - (Kyodo)—A team of researchers at Osaka University led by robotics professor Hiroshi Ishiguro unveiled Saturday a remote-control robot modeled on a real woman in her 20s who also appeared at the publicity event.

The robot, named Geminoid F, had a "dialogue" with the woman sitting on a sofa as it was remote controlled by another woman who had it say, "I am a bit embarrassed. I can see many (reporters)."

The woman who served as the model said, "I first thought it was another person who could be my sister, but when it was in motion I felt as if it was part of me."

When sitting on the sofa, the robot measured 140 centimeters in height. It weighs 30 kilograms. Operated by a personal computer and a monitor, it has nine moving parts, including eyes, mouth and neck.

"It can be used as a new means of communication by sending it to a remote place where you yourself cannot be present," said Ishiguro.

Kokoro Co., a Tokyo-based maker of robots, said it is planning to sell similar machines for around 10 million yen, eyeing potential uses in caring for hospital patients and old people or in exhibitions at museums.
