With Detroit Become Human launching last week, PlayStation Australia decided to carry out a social experiment. Its goal was to determine how everyday people would react to a Detroit Become Human android appearing in real-life.
To achieve this, a special team was assembled to create a real-life Detroit Become Human android. The team was comprised of a trained actor and a renowned Australian special effects makeup studio.
The ‘android’ was then sent out to the public with two tasks to complete; walk the dog and order a coffee.
The reactions from the public are very telling.
Detroit Become Human Android in the wild
Reactions to the real-life Detroit Become Human android included curiosity, bewilderment and suspicion. You can watch the full video below which is actually a pretty interesting look at people’s reactions to the unknown.
Detroit Become Human is available now for PS4.
