No, and I don't think C3PO is going to be a very good prototype for the sex bots that people are going to really want.

No, it does not freak me out.  However, I would hesitate to eat the omelets made from its groinal attachment.

The accessories have to attach somewhere.  They have to be stored somewhere too.

can an Android be a psychopath?  do they dream of electric sheep?

Androids are not a problem.  People not knowing that the replicants in Bladerunner were bio and not mechanical is a problem.

I suggest a Fourth Law for Robotics; Any robot able to move freely about should never move faster than half the speed of an adult running in terror.

Will it jump on my bed and lick my feet while the wife and I are getting busy? Because that would be a deal-breaker.
 
2014-01-27 12:57:55 PM
Just don't dress it up like a clown.

Then we're cool.

It's only a problem if you consider men having no use whatsoever for women anymore to be a problem.

so instead it uses its wireless link to get the garbage truck you didn't see to roll out of the alley you're passing by and crush you?

or the crane overhead to drop its load and crush you?

etc, etc.

Inevitably there will be services that swap out androids, or at least change their skins and features, on a periodic or on demand basis. The consumer will expect this. Plus there will need to be temporary rentals for when you and your android want some company.

Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed. The ability to destroy a person's personal life is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Will they come equipped with a Gemini Circuit?
 
2014-01-27 01:32:03 PM
No, but only if it never thinks it's superior to humans, and hopefully humans never decide that robots have rights.
 
2014-01-27 01:35:06 PM
Short answer: No

Long answer:You know where I'm going with this No

Can you imagine what working the tech support line for these things would be like?

"ACME Robot technical support, my name is Helen, how may I assist you today?"

"I done shot my dang robot agin!"

"Sir, I'm sorry, could you repeat that....you shot your robot? With a gun?"

"Yeah, I heard a noise downstairs, and I thought someone was breakin' in muh place! I gave a shout and it didn't say nuthin', sos I shot it! Can y'all git me a new one sent out by the Super Bowl?"

"Sir, I'm looking at your account now, and it appears this is the fifth robot you have destroyed with firearms in the past 6 months."

"Well if the damned thing weren't banging around in the kitchen all night, maybe I wouldn't shoot 'em up so much!"

"Sir, the robot will observe Sleep Hours if you program it to do so, but I also see in it's logs that on October 19th at 4:45am, you instructed your robot to, 'Always have some eggs and some hash waiting for me, if'n I come home drunk-ed'. Since you did not specify a specific date and used the word 'Always', the robot interpreted this as an every day request, and..."

"Well shiat, is that where all the eggs are going? I guess I need to apologize to the  young-uns, I figured they were chuckin' 'em at cars off the overpass or somethin...cain't you program these things to ignore me when I'm drunk?

"Actually, sir, the new Mark 7 model does come equipped with a built-in breathalyzer unit, and can be programmed to either ignore commands or seek command confirmation from another individual if your blood alchohol tests above a pre-programmed limit."

"That sounds fine, why don't you upgrade me to that one and send 'er on down."

"Excellent, is there anything else I can help you with today, Mr. Robertson?"

Listen honey. I went to the robot store and just like  we planned


I was going to get the male bot because theyare stronger.


But they only had females left.


And the saleends today.


So, I guess we are stuck with this female bot.



Darn the luck . . .

there is no practical reason to have a humanoid robot unless you plan on farking it.  other designs are far more efficient, stable and worthwhile.

at this point we are fully capable of building a working CP3O type robot (even if the AI isn't really there, you don't need AI, you need good programming) but there is just no real REASON to do so because R2D2 makes more logistical sense.

also a humanoid robot that falls over will not be able to get back up.

so here is how the tech evolution will go - real-dolls will become more and more realistic until it is as close to farking a real woman as possible, while actual USEFUL robots will be much more utilitarian.

I disagree. All of the tools, stairways, machines, etc in your home are designed to be operated by a human. How would R2D2 load the washing machine? Dishwasher? Climb the stairs?

A humanoid robot could do all that. Drive your car. Push your lawnmower. Use your snow shovel. etc.

You would also want it wrapped in a soft coating to avoid damage to walls, fabrics, etc.

Once you've got that it might as well have boobs.

I'd quite like a robot that looks entirely human. Assuming we can do that, and breach the uncanny valley situation. C3P0 is the worst robot ever, I'd hate to have such an ungainly and gangly, clumsy oaf of a robot that clinks and clanks everywhere it goes. R2D2 is crap because he just bee boops all the time. I'd rather have the T-x than them. Just without quite so much of the "kill all humans" about it.
 
2014-01-27 01:48:56 PM
I'm thinking that I have more work to do than a single robot could handle.
I might need three.

Something like this would be human enough to interact with and non-human enough to avoid the uncanny valley (IMO)
