Living with my son's dogs is a real treat.

"Get down. DOWN. Get off of the couch! Shut up! Stop goddamn barking at nothing! I SAID GET DOWN! DOWN! GET OFF OF THE COUCH!"

Yes, looking forward to robotic dogs.

So Phillip K. Dick was right again.
Just don't call them robots; call them replicants.

Screw that I want my robot to look like Caprica Six, with working holes and a red hair. The only problem with Real Dolls is they are not real enough.

I'd take a Three over a Six any day. Unless we're talking the other actress who was in contention to play Six... I'd definitely take one of those.

The same thing will happen to cats as soon as inventors come up with artificial poop that smells like Satan's flatus.

With a robot dog AND a 19-year old Valerie Bertinelli, this just landed on the top of my Netfilx queue.

Hoffman says, "At some point people didn't care anymore about the robot being so intelligent, and can improvise and listen, and do all these embodied intelligence things that I spent years developing. They really liked that the robot was enjoying the music. And they didn't say that the robot was moving to the music, they said that the robot was enjoying the music.

This could pave the way to developing robots with Genuine People Personalities.

Anything that won't piss on the legs of the dining room table would be a step in the right direction.

Checked for the K-9 picture, will be in my bunk thinking about Erin Grey.

I don't think "Warm and Furry bundle of Love and Joy" will ever describe a robot.
 
2014-04-02 04:31:39 PM  
Ummm... Okay. Can I have my Pet-class Angeloid now?

"Whether we like it or not, domestic robots will inhabit our homes in the not too distant future."

No, they really wont, not unless you want them to of course.

Never mind that; I want a nuclear-powered Rat Thing.

Imagine the market for teddy bears that actually look and move like bear cubs.

No they wont.  Check out some of the Welcome Home Blog videos with dogs for all the evidence you need.

What would the design specifications be for a robot cat?
-2h battery life; 6h recharge
-furry
-random 'furniture shred' routine
-ammonia byproduct

Never trust anyone who thinks like this. If a person is someone worth trusting, they'd already have those dogs happily playing at their feet! You probably like cats!
