Robotics researchers in Japan have shown off a new humanoid model that can belt out a tune with both natural-sounding vocals and the facial expressions to make it seem much more realistic.
The robot learns by mimicking a real human singer. TheÂ HRP-4C botÂ listens to the tune and watches the singerâ€™s lips as she performs. Then the humanoid re-creates its own rendition, using software named VocalListener to synthesize its own vocal sound.
When the HRP-4C a humanoid robot madeÂ herÂ debut in March 2009 it made news and hit the headlines, Now the HRP-4C created at theÂ Japanese National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology,Â has had an upgrade.
Just check out the HRP-4C funny dance video. Extremely spectacular..
