A Russian Company Is Selling Robot Clones of Real People

There’s a company in Russia called Promobot that is making ROBOT CLONES of real people.

Seriously.  They can make a robot that looks pretty realistically like ANYONE.  And the robots also have an artificial intelligence system that allows them to talk and interact, too.

The robots cost $20,000 to $50,000, depending on how detailed you want them.  And the company says it’s already gotten a few orders.

Before you spend your money though, you should know these robots can’t WALK.  But their faces, necks, and torsos can move.

The people behind Promobot say that these robots offer people, quote, “Digital immortality.”  Fannnntastic.
