Did anyone else hear a mangled, scratchy, "KiLl mEeEeEe in the background around 0:59?


very nice robot.

BTW... I get annoyed when a sales man says something like "the technology of tomorrow today". It's not future technology because we have it in the present. I can't tell you how many times I don't buy something right away because of salesmen or advertising like that.@y


That single eye is going to haunt my nightmares. I half expect it to yell "Nobody blinded me!"


That guy would be so much hotter with a short haircut.



@iceberg same wavelength.

@MissO Me too! Actually, if he had short hair and a smaller nose he would look just like a friend of mine. It was sort of distracting.


In a Venn diagram, "doll news on The Hairpin" would overlap nicely with respective circles entitled "The Singularity will kill us all" and "Possessed demonic dolls will kill us all." This is what gives the feature greatness.

I'm sorry scientists, but whhhhyyy are we pursuing the whole Artificial Intelligence thing? And if the answer is "Because we can," I'd like to add, "Because we can TERMINATOR. Because we can THE MATRIX. Because we can AI WITH HALEY JOEL OSMENT AND HIS SAD, ACCUSATORY EYES."


@lizardjellybean Every time I see a news story even remotely like this, I yell "SKYNET!!!"

You're wondering who I am (secret secret, I've got a secret)
Machine or mannequin (secret secret, I've got a secret)
With parts made in Japan (secret secret, I've got a secret)
I am the modern man!


Initial plans to electroplate the bones in chromium were scuttled.

Meh. I'll be really impressed when they can make the muscles work together to reduce the whole-body jiggling caused by the quick movements of the arm.

Hmm. This guy is apparently at my university. I could either stalk him obsessively, whispering at him from behind desks and bookcases to cut his hair so he thinks it's the robot talking....or I could avoid at all costs, because those jerky robot movements scare the living daylights out of me.
