I assume they try to make them human like so it can perform perfectly one day as a human thus removing the need for mind control of people which although is at a high standard isn't fool proof so the "rich elite" can finally eradicate their main problem,the poor

Yeh but also remember, robots have been used for YEARS in industry, ok they are not cute and they just do stuff like assemble/weld cars, but the humanoid shape is best for the human environment. Now, imagine a fleet of Asimo's as above, and a nuclear disaster like Fukishima? Too damn dangerous to send in humans, (even tho in Fukushima they had no choice but to)... wouldn't it be great to send in a fleet of robots to sort the mess out?

Or into a smokey environment like fires and such?  Defusing bombs even?  Space missions? In fact on the future Japanese Moon mission, they actually want to send Asimo! To walk on the moon!  Plus thats the reason behind NASAs robot, it can do the dangerous jobs outside the shuttle/ISS


Robots are perfect for long missions, wont need any food, water, life support, except a recharge and web link!!  ! don't doubt that humanoid robots will be a part of society one day, (they are already are in Japan to an extent), and Id like to be around to see that day.

Its easy to see ASIMO and think its a cool toy, but have you any idea how difficult it was to just make the thing walk on 2 legs?

Well, let me tell you about robots. Four hundred years ago, robots were given greater intelligence than any biological species so they could take care of all the complicated stuff, and the bios could sit back and relax.

Of course the robots soon got tired of serving the lazy bios, so they rebelled, attempting to take over the inhabited galaxy and cleanse the planets of all that bio-scum.

The war lasted three hundred years. The only reason the bios finally were victorious was because in desperation they gave up using tactics and strategy (the robots were far better at this) and began attacking randomly, thus confusing the robots.

In the end the robots that were left finally gave up, complaining that the bios hadn’t played fair. The surviving robots were sealed in a space ship and sentenced to forever drift aimlessly throughout space.

The bios then passed a law that stated no artificial intelligence could be created that was more intelligent than the most intelligent bio species. Of course the result was the post-war robots were now even dumber than the bios, and therefore even more lazy.

You just can’t win with robots.

The acceptance of authority does not lead to intelligence.
