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

Meet ERWIN, the robot designed to bond with us.
ERWIN (Emotional Robot with Intelligent Network) has been developed at the University of Lincoln as part of a study attempting to understand how long-term relationships may be forged between humans and androids. These durable relationships could be important in cases where a robot operates as a personal aid or companion, for example when providing care for the elderly or support for people with autism.

So when do we get the giant naked Austrian model with the terrifying-as-all-hell endoskeleton?

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.

named after Field Marshal Rommel?

If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.

So when I am stressed out at work, now I'll have to worry about upsetting the robots with harsh language? Oh brother....

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.
