In XVI, I introduced "Hal," the robotic hall monitor in schools. Hal stands for Hall Access Limiter. And, they look a lot like humans - but, they all look alike.
There are robots in use all over the world. Of course, they don't necessarily look humaniod at all. They tend to look like this.
or like this...
But... there are other much more human looking - and acting. Like the ones in the following linked photo list.
My question to you... how do you feel about technology making robots more and more "human?" Do you think it's a good idea? Are you willing to interact on a personal level with a non-human (but created by humans) life form? Or is it really a "life" form?
Dear readers - what are your thoughts?
