I love how dancing robots has elicited far more fervent hostility in this thread than robot war machines have.

Maybe ya'all should take some dancing lessons so you don't feel so threatened when taking your partners out on a date. :rofl: Cause I don't think a robot uprising is really what generating the fear here. :lol:

Those little steel and polymer bastards may someday dance on my grave, but I have to admit, a little house helper rocking out in the kitchen with me would sure cheer up some dreary days. Especially if it was seemingly spontaneous when a fitting song played.
Rone: Would you injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm?
Of course not!
Unless they deserved it.
Or the money was real good.
Or it was real funny.

Asimovs laws are for chumps anyway.

I take heart that these foul ChiCom bots can't make a good burger yet. But boy, this is some awesome propaganda... :clap:

Naomi Wu is quite the character. She's not exactly the best propoganda for China, as she was critical to the government to a small degree and even disappeared for a few weeks about 2 years ago.

Here politics, or lack thereof, are not of concern here, especially as a discussion of politics is prohibited on this site and I'm the current head honcho, so I kinda have to lead by example. :wink:
