Terrifying vid shows China’s humanoid robot factory with piles of skinned faces & lifelike machines to replace humans

TERRIFYING footage has revealed the inside of China’s haunting humanoid robot factory.

Piles of disembodied silicone heads, loose skin and leftover limbs can be seen piling up alongside lifelike droids as part of China’s apocalyptic mission to replace humans with machines.

Chilling video shows an engineer next to the carbon copy robot of himself with stick on skin that flawlessly replicates his facial expressions and emotions.

Female robots can also be seen with a face full of makeup and extravagant wigs flexing their hand movements.

The company behind the wacky project, Chinese startup Ex Robot, opened up their robot museum in 2022 after six years of droid development.

Each bot costs a whopping £160,000 and can take up to a month to finally bring to life in the city of Dalian.

Over 30 bionic robots are put on display at any given time in the exhibition hall where visitors can interact and listen to stories by the bizarre inventions.

With the robots even being able to transform into celebrities from the past such as Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

Due to the fact the droids have been made to become the perfect doppelganger, China hopes to be able to use them in the workplace.

The manufacturing facility boasts humanoids that are trained to mimic different service personnel in various industries.

They’re competent in caring for the elderly, manning corporate front desks and completing commercial activities and government services, Ex Robot claims.

The company website reads: “The company is committed to building an application scenario cluster with robots as the core, and creating robot products that are oriented to the whole society and widely used in the service industry.

“We hope to better serve society, help mankind, and become a new pillar of the workforce in the future.”

The humanoids are equipped with dozens of flexible actuators which enable them to move like a human and have the same grasping abilities in their hands.

In 2023, it was reported that EX Robots may have made history by creating the lightest humanoid robot ever and developing silicone skin simulation technology.

The firm combines 3D printing tech with digital design to help achieve the lifelike skin effect for the droids.

CHINA’S ROBOT WARS

It comes amid China’s fierce ongoing tech war with the United States, and as China faces serious demographic challenges – including a rapidly ageing population – as well as a property market crisis.

American firms such as Tesla and OpenAI-backed Figure are already working on humanoid robots.

Tesla’s $20,000 (£16,000) Optimus robot, the prototype for which was unveiled in September 2022, was expected to be mass-produced in three to five years.

China is currently the second-largest holder of humanoid robot patents with 1,699, behind Japanaccording to a November report by the Research Institute of People’s Daily Online.

In recent months, China has unveiled the world’s first AI hospital where robot doctors can treat 3,000 patients a day.

Dubbed “Agent Hospital”, the virtual facility will have the potential to save “millions” through its autonomous interaction.

As well as military robot dogs equipped with machine guns on their backs.

The nations Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced it is planning to mass-produce humanoid robots.

They want around 500 robots per 10,000 workers by 2025.

It believes the robots will be helpful for industries like healthcare home services, agriculture, and logistics.

Rise of the robots

AN AI expert told The Sun which jobs could face the axe in the next five years.

Professor Carl Frey, of the Oxford Internet Institute, is a leading academic on the subject of artificial intelligence has bad news for plenty of us.

With the chatbot ChatGPT able to write like a human, experts have previously warned white-collar jobs will be the first to face the axe.

The mind-blowing app can write, read and solve complex puzzles – while other similar AI programmes create incredibly realistic images, videos and even voices.

Jobs which involve analysing documents and telemarketers are likely to be under threat, according to the expert.

Companies may turn to technology to cut costs for tasks they do not need to hire people for.

Professor Frey also believes autonomous vehicles may be on the horizon at some point and this will lead to driving jobs being lost.

He added: “When autonomous vehicles arrive, they’re not going to augment a taxi driver, they’re going to replace those drivers.”

And even if workers manage to hang on to their jobs, he says the influx of new competition for their roles could result in lower wages.

However, he said: “Jobs with in person communication skills are going to be relatively safe from artificial intelligence.”

Professor Frey also gave the argument of how AI writing-tools lack “true creativity” as they write based on existing data.

Doctors, nurses and sports coaches are unlikely to be replaced anytime soon because of the human aspect of the roles.

A different world may await us.” he added.
