This video demonstrates the amazingly realistic (and a bit creepy) Actroid F Telepresence robot (nicknamed the ‘Angel of Death’ as it is designed to sit in hospitals with patients), a full sized female humanoid with complex facial movements and realistic appearance.

A webcam on your computer watches your face and head movements and has the robot mimic your expressions.

‘Pretty impressive’ I hear you say, but if the machine suddenly went haywire and tore it’s own face off while repeating ‘MUST! KILL! DESTROY!’, this is what it it would look like:
