Humanoid Robotics

Damn things are starting to look too much like humans.  :knuppel2:

Government is not the solution to our problem—government is the problem.   Ronald Reagan

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who would not.   Thomas Jefferson

During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.   George Orwell

If you ever find yourself in need of a safe space then you’re probably going to have to stop calling yourself a social justice warrior. You cannot be a warrior and a pansy at the same time   Mike Adams (RIP Mike)

That's pretty creepy. Why do they need to look like us to do their jobs/functions? I would prefer cute and cuddly like R2D2 myself.

Are we going to have sex with them or are they just going to exterminate us? ::)

All smart asshery aside, I am a strong believer in humans retaining the ability to do hard mental and physical tasks (think Dune).  There is a use however for robots for extremely dangerous jobs.

I'm sure there must be more options.
