Robot makes your portrait just by looking at you

A totally ingenious robotics researcher named Sylvain Calinon has created what might be the perfect storm of art and science -- a robot that can recognize and then draw portraits of human subjects. The bot, named HOAP-3, is able to distinguish a human face, take a still frame of that image, and then create a drawing by (robotic) hand based on what it sees.

The robot seems alive.
I can't wait for the day when living among robots will be considered perfectly normal.
