    Creepfest again. They should stop giving them humanlike skin and hair, that might help.

    Should I be worried that that face isn't triggering my uncanny valley reflex?

    Still creepy. Robotics would be much further along if they just gave up trying to make them look and emote like humans and concentrated on making them actually useful for everyday work.

    That 'stasche is creepier than the guy's eye's. Also agree with Gingerchris, in that they should stop trying to make it look human and work towards it doing something that benefits the human race.

    At least it's not some shut-in's attempt at a robot girlfriend. That in itself is progress.

    They're trying to make themselves a Ron Jeremy robot boyfriend there. They're just waiting for the hair and moustache to grow longer. Among other things.

    Give me something like seen in I, Robot. The old loyal ones, not the creepy rubber-faced ones that tried to kill everyone. I want my robot servant, dammit.

    One with curvaceous tits and ass? Remember, noids do not have sex with doodles. Keep your pencil in your pocket.

    The whole "robot girlfriend" thing is an eventuality. What I don't quite understand is how anyone could possibly find any excitement in it, no matter what the level of "realism" involved. Still, people get off on blow up dolls, and I don't get that either. It takes all kinds I guess.
