Holiday Gift Idea: Doppelganger Robots

Give the gift that keeps on giving with scary robots that look just like you! Select department stores in Japan are offering super rich people the opportunity to purchase custom designed doppelganger robots from Japanese robotics firm Kokoro.

These droids will do more than just look eerily similar to their owners: Kokoro will also incorporate the person's speech patterns, facial expressions and body movements that will allow buyers to finally fulfill their childhood dream of ditching school by sending a robot twin in their place to deceive teachers.
