    Until they make one that looks like a terminator, label me uninterested.

    Cool. I can understand why they didn't throw a mouth on, though. They'd need to write whole programs to get it to work right in order to sync it with any vocals.

    It's just a big emoticon.

    I guess no fire and killing is needed here.

    Seriously, stop wasting time and money on building giant toys to be our friends and get to work on making me my damnated robot servant.
    This is why robotics is stuck in limbo - either people want to fuck the robot or make it our chum. I want something to do my gardening, cook my food and clean my house.

    Gah. I can't unsee it now. Wish they added a mouth and made it look remotely human. Anime face doesn't equal human being.

    Why, why oh why does it have fucking cat ears? God that is so damned freaky.

    That's... just... stupid.

    Actually, robotics research is 'stuck in limbo' (if you agree that it even is) because of the short sightedness of people in control of theh funding. The sad truth is that the only cash available right now is if the final product sells, and the 'robot companion' is pretty much the only fundable and worthwhile avenue.

    You want a robot to do the housework? Fine, but you are going to need to give it instructions without learning to program an obscure language, and it will need to gain your trust around your home.

    This kind if research is actually extremely useful for the end goal of a robot helper in the home.
