If you follow this site then you know that we usually post progress on the artwork and story for Linder's comic books and graphic novel, current and future technologies, and related things that reflect similarities to the neo-noir futuristic graphic novel Prisoner of the Mind

This includes everything from A. I.robotics, genetics, brain-machine interface, drones, flying cars, spy-tech and more as seen in the graphic novel. But sometimes reality mimics art a little too much.

This is what they have to say about it.

This creation is Mindar, a Buddist robot. The robot was unveiled at Kodaiji Temple in Kyoto to share Buddha's teachings in plain terms. Mindar is modeled after buddhist goddess of mercy, Kannon. The deity transforms itself into different forms to help people and “This time, Kannon changed into an android”.

The wise robot would “help people who usually have little connection with Buddhism to take an interest” in the religion.

Mindar the robot was created by the temple and MR. Hiroshi Ishiguro, a professor of intelligent robotics at Osaka University, It was built by Tokyo-based A-Lab Co.
