(Phys Org2)   For only $16,000, you can give your child first humanoid robot toy with a horrifying rubber human-like face and a voice like GLaDOS, guaranteeing another $200k in therapy bills. And that's if it doesn't develop a taste for human blood   (phys.org) divider line 36

You say that like I don't read every thread her voice.

Maybe it's an advanced robot but the video makes it looks as impressive as a Teddy Ruxpin.

Maybe it's just early but that headline hurt my head.

Seanbaby warned us of this. I'm certain of it.

The robots are coming! Yessssss

If you have a child, you shouldn't have this robot.

If you have this robot, you shouldn't have a child.

If you can't figure that out, you shouldn't have $16,000.

Taking care of a humanoid robot might be a good test to see if a human can take care of a real child.

/Here are the test results: You are a horrible person. I'm serious, that's what it says: "A horrible person." We weren't even testing for that. Don't let that "horrible person" thing discourage you. It's just a data point. If it makes you feel any better, science has now validated your birth mother's decision to abandon you on a doorstep.

Anyone in this thread have experience putting a custom ROM on a RealDoll?

That was Ming-Na's problem in the film Robot Stories.

For $20k, can it be a bit taller and female? It doesn't need to look like an adult female, young is good. As long as it's anatomically correct and with removable clothes.

How long until the first lawsuit because some kid gets his dick caught in its mouth?

Well ghastly I'd say about five minutes after the first kid brings one home.

ftfa: "face allows human-like expressions" ... "lifelike movement"

Um, no.
Not even in the ballpark.

It looks and moves just like a "Thunderbirds" puppet.
