Better be on your best behavior, Scarlett Johansson; it appears you can be replaced.
A not-at-all-weird product and graphic designer has spent a year and a half and more than $50,000 to build a robot that looks eerily like ScarJo, Mirror Online reports.
The creator of the robot, Ricky Ma, said he has enjoyed robots since childhood — but, for some reason, he was met with skepticism when he embarked on this endeavor.
“After I grew up, I wanted to make one,” Ma said. “But during this process, a lot of people would say things like, ‘Are you stupid? This takes a lot of money. Do you even know how to do it? It’s really hard.'”
Ma heavily employed 3D printing technology to build the semi-articulated automaton, using the technology to make the skeleton inside the robot.
Ma, who calls his creation Mark 1, would only confirm that the robot was modeled after a Hollywood star, though its resemblance to the “Avengers” actress is bizarrely uncanny.
Despite the naysayers, Ma feels that his hard work has been worth it.
“I figured I should just do it when the timing is right and realize my dream,” Ma said. “If I realize my dream, I will have no regrets in life.”
With his prototype built, Ma now hopes that an investor will purchase his creation, so that he will have cash to carry on his passion.
Maybe the makers of the RealDoll have some spare ducats hanging around.
