holy shitake its chobits in the making..
That is frightening yet somehow intriguing. These are like Real Dolls becoming animated except not really at all and I'm surprised no one has related this to persocoms yet. And you call yourselves an anime community.
"so i herd u liek mudkips"
I said something about persocoms but it was on a different post that was closed because it was a copy of this thread... Anyway, what i had said before was that technology has come so far and still has so far yet to go. This is where we could actually go and build an actual persocom (or similar item)... But this is also the defining moment where the question is no longer "can we?", but when we should pause and think "should we?"
Yes and yes to AnimeAficianado(for bringing it up as well). :]Originally Posted by nirvana beyond stupidity

kool Gundam robots i would like to have one of those
it's better to start early.... i mean what are they thinking! thigns that look like people and actually could walk on the street and blend in with the human population... plus ya never know when a wire breaks lose or the battery malfunctions! O_O i am just scared that this thing is already made..... it's not long until one is in every house. it won't be long before they kill us all.....It's still too early for paranoia. Like Delerium said, we just have to wait and see how technology grows within the next few years or so. However, I might sound stupid, but I agree on the whole "matrix" conspiracy. You'd think after all the movies (like I-robot), we'd limit the technology in robotics, but it doesn't seem that's the case. Maybe in 40 years they will have fully-functional andriods or cyborgs running around, let's hope that's not the case.
You know, for me, this is nothing short of a dream come true... But people have to stop right now and think long and hard if this is really something that should be done! Think about it, there is always a malfunction somewhere... The term A.I.- Artificial Intelegence, but if it is intelegence then how is it artificial? It's a computer, it learns, it thinks (ect.). There are many complications like if an android were to act truely human, it would eventually FEEL human emotions, wether a synthisis program or truely feeling the emotions, it will happen. And that is my reason for saying this. Feelings are hurt, easily at that. One get's hurt the others back it up (they're computers, they're linked right?), and then it becomes mass chaos because of one person who didn't treat the thing as a true person and as an item. Almost all people could admit to feeling or acting that way. And that is why this shouldn't be happening, as much as i wish it would, we shouldn't. This is a line i believe we were NEVER meant to cross...
