I so agree. There is so much WTF stuff out there. We need to make one.

It would be better if I knew what the baby was possibly FOR. I can't understand the language they're speaking (which is Korean? I can't tell. But the subtitles were Japanese…)

This year, school's full of BS!!!

They're speaking Japanese.

It is a great advance in science…. but still a little creepy.

I didn't even watch the video and I'm still creeped out.

What next? Robot soldiers?

Wait, if that would prevent decent human beings from killing each other, that might not be so bad…

I thought that. but it seems that I'm the only one who thought it was cute. =(

I think it might be used to study how the baby brain delvops in terms of learning in order to improve A.I, maybe?
I'm on hitatus while I redo one of my webcomics. Be sure to check it out when I'n done! :)

ok I saw a small thing about it on TV. It has this rubbery body so it can move more human like. It has sensors ALL over so when you touch it, it looks at you. It cannot walk, but if you grab it and pull it up, it learns to stand on its own. If you squeeze its arm too hard, it will talk.

WTF!!!!!!!

i've seen robotic systems like this before. they start complately blank with only some basic skills on their own movement. they then learn how to control themselves and do things they weren't specifically programmed to do. do a search for MIT's cog robot. i think youtube has some videos.

Thank goodness we don't have a reason to reproduce anymore…..

Incidentally, a good friend once told me - he probably read it somewhere - that theorists believe that before you have a life-like androids you will have a stage where the robotitrons end up looking horrific because they're close but there's just something off about them. Thus, they remind us of our humanity but at the same time we know just by looking that these constructs are entirely inhuman.

That robot woman looks a little drunk or on a crack. Haha, I kept expecting her to reach out and strangle the guy like in those little robotic horror flicks.

It's called the “Uncanny Valley”. :)

I think that's why I'm scared of TV/movie traditionally depicted aliens. ^_^ They're humanoid, yet all stretched out and horrific. Ew. *Shudder*

Yes, how can they take over our world when they cannot even walk up stairs! Now I imagine a war between humans, and robots, and the humans secret weapon are stairs. That'd be funny.

Comic idea?

Why does the news have nothing, but unimportant stuff?
