This Man Spent $50,000 to Create a Very Disturbing Scarlett Johansson Robot
Meet Ricky Ma, a 42-year-old graphic designer living in Hong Kong with his robot, "Mark 1," modeled after a Hollywood star who he refuses to publicly name.
Anyone with even basic Hollywood knowledge will quickly figure out "Mark 1" is a dead ringer for Scarlett Johansson.
It took Ricky two years and $50,000 to complete, and though he initially knew nothing about electromechanics and computer programming, he learned it just so he could fulfill his childhood dream.
What's even creepier is that ScarBot can move its arms and legs and even make different facial expressions.
To make it even more scaring, the robot can also talk. In a demonstration, Ricky tells her she's beautiful, and ScarBot replies, "Hehe, thank you."
No word on how Scarlett Johansson feels about Ricky's disturbing passion project, but I get the feeling she wouldn't reply with a, "hehe, thank you."
