  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

www.dailymail.co.uk said:

They have made robots that talk, walk and speak like humans.

Now researchers have taken another leap forward in android technology - with a robot that eat just like a human and, just like a human, has to visit the toilet.

The team created a robot which uses organic matter for fuel, then 'excretes' the waste.

They claim it could be the first step on the way to a new generation of ‘eco bots’ that may even need their own toilets - or share those humans do.

Another theory is that they could actually be toilets themselves, and use human waste for power.

I like to imagine a future with robots as is depicted in robot stories by Issac Asimov. Getting to that kind of technology will be great (Mining Mercury eh...)  :devil:

And a lie, Mr. Mulder, is most convincingly hidden between two truths.

I am a bad subject for polls, I believe almost anything.
