Yeah. Real "excited" about finding this just now on youtube. I felt the need to share. If you have other advanced robot info please share it with me. Even though this makes my stomach churn, it is inevitable and I *suppose* I should inform myself and others. Even though regarding this topic, I might just change my mind and find a nice cave to hide out in instead. Not that robots couldn't find me there too. Ah crap. Well, in any case. Enjoy:

Great. Just great. You don't want to click this, honestly.

I Dont know What it Is But Something ? Makes Me Feel Uncomfortable About These Robot/Android/Computer things. I Dont Think Were Ready. We Cant Even look after Each other ( and ourselves ) let alone MACHINES

Amazing and wonderful.
Damn I feel I was born 20 years too early, I seriously want to see this develop over the next 50 years, I would bet that in 50 years, a robotic person and a human person will be nearly indistingishable without cutting them open.

I am very impressed with the far east. They are now truely the best place on earth for innovation. I am a bit saddened that we here in the west have decided to stagnate and ultimately give up on progressing our civilization. May the new Asian golden age do well.

Speak for yourself, I can look out for myself and my own..don't blame me or anyone else for your own personal issues.

If you are not ready...then don't attain one..pretty simple really. Not ready to drive a car, then don't drive one, but do not suggest that because your not ready, nobody else is.

I don't know what the problem is. Are you guys concerned about your PC? What if we take the motherboard, processor, hard drives and ram out, stick them in a rubber human shaped suit and install software that can control
servo motors and do rudimentary speech recognition?

That's all this is. The robot cant think out problems, cant even go into the kitchen and follow the instructions to make a decent cup of coffee. It can't bake a cake.

It can't drive a car. It cant ride a bike.

What's the problem? If anything they're using these things as receptionists to direct customers and be an automated information desk.

Lol, oh no the terminatorz are here run for the electromagnets!!!!



It's still interesting but robots designed to look like humans are aesthetic devices only. Real robots will look designed to perform the job they are made for.

Luddies always fear progress...yet for some reason, they never fear progress made before they became who they are...only things they are not familiar with.

new concepts to some humans gives them primal fear...irrational to its core, but there it is anyhow.

Of course, sci-fi horrors don't help their mindset out.

This is more or less exactly what I would've said had it not been previously stated; Thanks.

I have seen these videos posted before. From Vietnam, to Japan and to South Korea. Don't forget about both Chinas and maybe India as well. Got to love Asia!

I know, but I guess it's the nature of humanity to fear things like this. we've come a fair way from robbie the robot and I'm with you - I wish I could see where it all does end up.

Aye, I must admit that I am glad that I am only 20 years old, and that I have the opportunity to see the acceleration of science. Definitely the beginning of a new world when looked at the angle of robotics. But as comrade says above, we are hardly capable of being responsible for ourselves.

I am inclined to believe that in those next 50 years, cutting them open won't even suffice. The fusion between robot and human will be compelling. I'd love to see the crippled walk again thanks to new robotic engineering:

This, I believe, is nothing in comparison to Japan's endevours. I was trying to find the video I found earlier, but wasn't able to.

Oh, click here. Do eet now.

Best robot link so far that I've found. Holy smokes I opened a can of worms on myself.

I've seen this before and if memory serves me correctly there was a man in another room and the robot was being used as a communication tool. It is creepy to watch it but that is where technology is heading. Imagine the video game world if you had real lifelike bodies to control.

On a plus-side, it will be a great new blood-sport. Pit realistic robots against eachother gladiator style. Until them darn hippies start preachin' "robot rights" - Bah.

When I was a kid, personal computers were just starting to come out. it was a weird and unique thing to own (also, the first "real" video game console was coming out around the same time. Atari 2600).
People were interested, but there were many adults whom seen this as very creepy. This strange paperless typewriter, calculator, and a bunch of other things combined hooked up to your television set.

I remember programming in basic endless hours to make a really basic stick figure scene...it was amazing, but yep, people worried that it would advance into something dangerous...they couldn't put their finger on it..just something unnatural and creepy about computers.

Well, here we are 35 years later. The computer is as accepted in the home as a television or a mailbox. Its about as creepy as a pillow, and has unfathomably advanced in the short time.

Now it seems the east is seriously pushing the next step in our technological evolution...the personal robot. still in the labs and prohibitively expensive (like the initial computers). And the same arguments will of course come...its weird, its creepy, it will be too expensive for serious markets, etc etc etc...

in perhaps 35 years from now, the very lifelike human robot will be a staplemark in many peoples homes...however, due to the law of accelerated return, this time may be cut in half or less. artificial intelligence, emotions that can be debated by philosophers about it being real or simulated, ability to cook, clean, and even write a interesting and creative story.

It will remove tons of jobs from the economy, but will replace it with a much higher standard of life, and of course add more jobs (robot upgrade specialists, repair techs, etc)...of course all of those jobs will be done by robots also. heh.

Exciting times we live in...absolutely the best times (in my opinion) to experience...imagine if this was the age, the generation that does find massive life extension...with the age reversing mice, the touchable holograms, and now the clear robotic advancement the east is taking on, we may find ourselves in a golden age of achievement.

Same with any technology in the wrong hands.
the wrong hands end up in handcuffs.

I can program my robot to go on a murdering spree...sure...and there will be about 200 million robots ready to take mine down..not to mention core programming.

I urge you to click my new link, interesting find. I'm convinced at least one is a robot, they are all convincing however.

I do fully agree with you. I suppose what makes me most curious about this, is what technology is really out there that we have absolutely no knowledge of.

If human-robots are a fact, countries no longer need most of their people.

A very scary scenario.

Death to robots!
