Detroit: Become Human (Sony)

 

OK, so No Man’s Sky now has another E3 to thrill us all,

but lets look instead at another intriguing Sony exclusive:

the latest title from Quantic Dream.

 

It’s a timely tale of intelligent human-like androids

looking for acceptance and meaning,

but probably more likely to discover

tragedy and quick-time events.

Robots in disguise: does tech need a human face?        Video        G        19 November 2020

 

Many robots are designed with a face

– like Hitchbot or Pepper robot – yet don't use their 'eyes' to see, or speak through their 'mouth'.

Given that some of the more realistic humanoid robots, like Sophia, are widely considered to be unnerving,

and that humans have a propensity to anthropomorphise such designs in technology,

should robots have faces at all - or do these faces provide other important functions?

And what should they actually look like anyway? Richard Sprenger explains
