BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Japanese develop 'female' android

 Repliee Q1 plus Professor Hiroshi Ishiguru (Getty)

The Osaka University website seems to be unreachable currently, but I found the link below to a bit from Discovery Channel on Repliee Q2 (The upgrade of the Q1 model). I am very impressed with her range of motion, and especially the speed at which she moves, it seems very natural.

I wonder how development is going on those electroactive polymer muscle fibers? Repliee uses compressed-air actuators.
