Ahead of the German premiere of the “android opera” Scary Beauty, the new “lifelike” humanoid robot Alter 3 was unveiled at the New National Theatre in Tokyo.

Alter 3 was created by Osaka University roboticist Hiroshi Ishiguro and University of Tokyo artificial life researcher Takashi Ikegami, who have been working for four years on this innovative endeavor that combines their respective fields. Osaka University, University of Tokyo, mixi, Inc., and Warner Music Japan collaborated on this research project.
