A more human looking robotic future/present

After posting the robot links last month someone sent me this one.

"Japanese scientists have unveiled the most human-looking robot yet - a "female" android named Repliee Q1Expo. She has flexible silicone for skin rather than hard plastic, and a number of sensors and motors to allow her to turn and react in a human-like manner.
She can flutter her eyelids and move her hands like a human.

She even appears to breathe."

I wonder how much a 'Roger Relief Teacher' version will cost? And will anyone notice if it goes to class or staff meetings instead of me? :-)
