Man of TomorrowWizard of ScienceBy night known as:Captain Future
This year saw the invasion of telepresence robots—electromechanical avatars that allow you to be there without actually being there. Today, half a dozen companies are selling, or will start selling, these robots.

In this paper, I explore an area of emerging science, android science, and attempt to start a dialogue about possible future legal implications of fully conscious robots, referred to in this essay as humanoids. While the world currently has millions of robots doing industrial, commercial, and household tasks, I focus specifically on the legal challenges of human sexual interaction with future humanoids, albeit notional technology at this point in time. While this humanoid is a giant leap forward technologically, if a self-aware, super-intelligent, thinking, feeling humanoid is developed, the legal system will be hard pressed to distinguish this creature legally from human actors on grounds not stemming from a religious or moral prejudice. I consider whether human–humanoid sexual interactions should be regulated, the possible rights that might devolve to humanoids, and, finally, possible cost and benefit implications to humans in providing protections to humanoids. The objective is to discuss how the legal framework might appear if humans are not the only legal actors.

The hard truth—and you don’t see it addressed in news reports—is that the middle class is disappearing in large part because technology is rendering middle-class skills obsolete.
HRP-4C has a human-like face that many will find creepy, and her moves are a little stilted on the dance floor. Still, watching the robot perform as part of a real human dance troupe is pretty amazing.

This site is called Communist Robot to draw attention to significant
technological, economic, and political issues that if ignored could lead
to the demise of not only the United States, but every country with
significant investment in Capitalism. This site is made by United States
citizens with a genuine concern for their country and a belief that as
robotic technology reaches commercial viability over the next 50 years
that a new Communist threat will arise and jeopardize the stability of
Capitalist nations, particularly the United States.

This four-legged robot is not preprogrammed to walk. Like a newborn animal it explores itself and learns to use its limbs to move. When a leg is damaged, it repeats the process and works out a new method of locomotion.

Interesting... if it's used by the military, and learns to reproduce itself, we move into Philip K. Dick territory I think...

Just imagine how scared your friends and family will be when they see you walking towards them as a life-size, terrifying Monster Robot.
