{Video} Detroit Become Human: Lifelike Android At Tokyo Gaming Conference Is Creepy

Footage captured at this year’s Tokyo Game Show has people baffled causing a debate on whether or not the Android is fake or real.  but not everyone believes their eyes.

Many believe it must be a person, while others think she it’ a real robot.

The alleged automaton, which some social media users have even admitted to ‘falling in love’ with the ‘pretty’ machine, was at the Japanese games convention to promote a PlayStation 4 game.

A number of Japanese-made and international games are on display at the convention, which has been held annually for the last 21 years.

The beautiful female ‘android’ stood out to many of the more than a quarter of a million gamers who attended, despite the fact she is only a PR prop.

She along with several others of her kind were stood at the booth of Detroit: Become Human, a new video game developed by French firm Quantic Dream and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment.

Visitors could be forgiven for thinking the apparently man-made machine was in fact a real-life human, as the video shows stunning build detail on her face and in the movements of her limbs.

In the short clip, the ‘android’ smiles and waves, leaving expo-goers and social media users stunned.

According to the game’s storyline, the humanoid robots promoting the game are state-of-the-art AP700 models, called ‘the most reliable android’.
