    That robot looks like it's saying "uh-oh" after accidentally snapping her spine in two.

    Not creepy? That's debatable.

    They seem to like robots, though, even Doraemon, their number one cartoon character, is a robot cat.

  8. Does anyone else think that kinda looks like the Stay-Puft Marshmellow Man?

    It's because 90% of people would freak out if there was a collection of wires in a gleaming exoskeleton of steel serving them, so they try to design the look with slightly comic approach.

    That was exactly what I was thinking about :D

    There's one thing with robots: when they are designed to appear like mechanical humans, people tend to think that they are intelligent creatures, but of course their intelligence is nothing more than a series of pre-programmed routines combined with fuzzy logic to apply it when required. If you want to create a robot that is not scary, make it look like a simple voice-controlled apparatus.

    that would rule. I'd give mine vampire teeth, but program him to cry when he sees a kitten.

    I'd mount bazookas on his shoulders, and program him to scare people into a corner, at which point he would shoot them with the bazookas. The 'bang' flag would come out of both, and the robot would saunter off laughing a very metallic laugh. Good times.
     
  17. You stole my idea:spit:

    Exept mine had more guns then yours.:p
     
  18. I would have mine speak in a really thick Scotish accent and insult people all the time.

    Nothin better.:D

  19. Mine would have a built-in metronome, and would dance with it by command.

    He could also fly, have eye-lasers, be indestructible, and wedgie those I wished.

    And have a ravioli-making machine for a stomach.
