Kokoro’s “Actroid Der” is a female robot that features “lifelike silicon skin and a silky voice to match– it’s rented out to Japanese companies to act as a receptionist or to make high-tech presentations.” Video from Nextfest 2006 after the jump.

Takeshi Mita, a director of Kokoro Company LTD, which makes the Actroid, said “companies want something special, it’s a good advertisement or a promotion.” The Actroids drew complimentary remarks from visitors such as French designer Philippe Starck
