Leave it to the Japanese to create a robotic toddler.  The concept makes sense: use the robot to study early childhood development (because what parent in their right minds would allow their kid to be the subject of early childhood development experiments?).

Is it just me, or does it look like something out of a horror movie (a la The Grudge)?

(Visual Description: A robot made to look like a Japanese toddler sits in a chair. Its entire body is done in a shade of gray, including the skin. Its eyes and hair are black. The facial expression on the robot seems to be one of either surprise or fear. A little boy leans over to look at the robot.)
