Robot co-stars as actress in stage play in Tokyo

Robots might not only replace nurses in the future (see blog post) but also actors (George Lucas would certainly like this).

The 'robot' Gemenoid-F co-stars in a twenty minute play in Tokyo, playing the role of the android caretaker of a terminally ill girl. However, the robot is completely controlled by a human actress behind the stage; therefore, Gemenoid-F should be considered more of an animatronic puppet than an autonomous robot.
