CB2 baby humanoid robot (with videos)

On June 1, researchers from Osaka University's Graduate School of Engineering unveiled a robot that acts like a human infant, which they hope may one day help scientists better understand the child development process.

The researchers have named the baby robot "CB2," and for now, it is designed to function as a 1- to 2-year-old child, gazing intently at its surroundings, squirming about on the floor and lighting up the room with child-like charm.

I've never liked human kids; apparently I don't like robot kids either.

So what is diaper changing like with a robot baby?

And BTW, is CB2 a chip off the old block?

(I couldn't let that one go by...)
