The Author Returns

Are you ready for...android reincarnation?
Soseki Natsume is being recreated as an android by Nishogakusha University Graduate School, and will be programmed to read material out loud and give lectures.

Created in a sitting posture, the robot will be 130 centimeters high and built using 3D scans of a death mask and vintage photos.

Nastume, who is famous for Kokoro and I Am a Cat, attended the university in 1881 where he studied Chinese poetry and Confucianism.

To celebrate the institutes 140th anniversary, a team of students is making a 'Soseki Android'.

The group plans to explore Nastume's life and gather information regarding his physical appearance and size for a closely accurate robot.
Well, it worked for Disney...
