Lifelike Avatar Babies Are Just a Tad Creepy

Halloween may be over but this certain qualifies as something that would have been perfect on October 31st.  Regardless of the date I’m a little creeped out right now.   The reason is because of the picture above.   These are the creation of Spain-based realistic baby maker Babyclon.  They are called “Avatar babies” and their realness is already giving me nightmares even though I’m awake as I write this.  Why there’s even a realistic baby making company is a little freaky let alone babies made to look like miniature Avatar Na’vi characters.

The babies are made entirely from silicone, cost $2,000 apiece, and give me the willies.  Look below and you’ll see a video of somebody playing with them in case you weren’t sure how messed up these things are.   I mean is this supposed to be a template for AI or something?  Like, are we going to create whatever babies we want for the real world?  What the hell is the reason behind this?

P.S. don’t watch this video if you want to lead a productive life today.
