Her cold eyes will forever haunt me, now when I feel like I am being judged I will see those eyes staring into my soul, filled with a cold wrath I have never seen, the same cold eyes I see when I look into the mirror.

I dont like dollfie. They typically have a creepy looking. I probably like if she is more anime looking, just like Danny Choo's Smart Doll.

For a moment, I was concerned about the doll being life-sized. So much dirty potential if that were the case.

This doll figure of Miku looks more soulless than cute...

Now that's the kind of doll that will murder you in your sleep which is why it's best not to get one. Shocked

Yes yes yes, dolls are creepy, very entertaining. I came on here to yell about Dollfie Honey not being a real thing, anyone who knows anything about Volks dolls knows this, etc., but it seems that I thought wrong. This is exciting as a person who loves robits and also dolls and loves robit dolls. This is more or less what I've always wanted since I was a small human.

SEE YOU IN YOUR DREAMS.

I thought Danny Choo's Smart Doll was the collaboration of Danny Choo's creative team and Volks. Wasn't Hatsune Miku one of the characters featured in Danny Choo's lineup of Smart Doll releases?

It looks great to me. I hope to see a video of it in action.

It should not be too long before somebody programs it to perform a song and dance, if possible.
I am very curious to see if it is capable of that.

I'm waiting for the life-sized version that serves you tea and says "take care" and "welcome home" in Japanese.

Nice idea though not really any real AI involved, obviously such wouldn't fit in that size...

Fit it with high-bandwitdh Wi-Fi and connect it to a smaller supercomputer at your home base through it, install an adequate AI software, and anything else you might need like image recognition etc,on that computer and throw in a few self-learning programs and necessary hard patterns, then put/sew in enough touch/optical feedback sensors as well as a gyroscope into Miku and make the data from those the sensory input for the AI in order for it to process the wished output. THAT might make me a bit interested...

I was expecting life-size as well, but being smaller isn't too shocking. What did surprise me is that this isn't at least as big as My Size Barbie.
