"Android" is mis-applied here. The thing is best described as a "Humaniform Robot". An android is an artificial human of biological origin -- a humanoid creature designed and grown in a laboratory. This thing was assembled in a workshop.

Quote:
The Kannon deity transforms itself into various forms to help people.

“This time, Kannon changed into an android,” according to the temple.
Just another religious hoax being perpetrated on a gullible public.
