The incredibly ‘life-like’ android appears to show how the line between woman and machine is starting to disappear. It was filmed at the Tokyo Games Show, to the delight and terror of millions around the world.

The footage has already amassed three million views on one video-sharing platform alone, but not everyone believes their eyes.

A fierce debate has broken among those who have seen the robot with many believing it must be a person, while others think she is the genuine object. Some social media users have even admitted to ‘falling in love’ with the ‘pretty’ machine.
