The future is now. At this year's World Exposition, Japan is planning to present a veritable army of humanoid robots. They may not look like the boy next door, but they may be more intelligent. And, from playing musical instruments to dancing to helping care for the elderly and disabled, they can do almost anything.

Japan's cleverest robot is named Takeru Sakurai, and he was born human. When the 24-year-old engineering student dons his custom-tailored robot suit, he suddenly acquires supernatural powers. From a seated position, Sakurai can just about effortlessly lift a 20 kilogram water canister, almost as if it were a loaf of bread. And it's almost all brain power. Read more...

Robots are starting to move into the white collar world. No longer content to work serving drinks or helping kids cross streets, robots are now entering the office as receptionists. Japanese employment agency PeopleStaff has begun offering robotic receptionists to its clients; for $430 a month, you can get a robot Hello Kitty or Ifbot (pictured) to sit at your front desk and greet visitors. We're not quite sure what kind of company would actually want to hire Hello Kitty as a receptionist, but that's almost beside the point. What we really want to know is this: what do you do when your recepto-bot starts bursting into impromptu renditions of "Daisy?"
