    I don't find anything particularly threatening or even impressive about these robots. It's not like they have a sophisticated AI system yet. When you can converse with a robot, that's when I'll start getting worried.

    Yeah, but given the speed of these new advances, I wouldn't be surprised if a fully interactive AI is developed in the next 5 years.

    While neat to explore, I can't help but think this could lead to some serious issues. Or maybe I've watched the Matrix and Animatrix too much. ;)

    Oh, you can converse with a robot. Its responses won't make any sense to you necessarily, but you can have a conversation with it...

    'Hello, how are you?'
    'I do not understand "how". Do you like cheese?'

    For some reason, I highly doubt any comment regarding blow up dolls, and robots, would be remotely witty.
