(Avacodo 6/29/2005 6:50:42 AM)
|"I think that it would be a terrible society in which to live not knowing whether the person sitting next to you is a real person or an android. I hope I never live to see that day."

|"Hey Great!! But what about all the starving people in the world or the West Papuans being slaughtered by the Indonesian military? Oh well! At least we have useless robots! YES! SCORE!"

|"How is she in bed?"
(Ray Emerson 7/5/2005 7:04:03 PM)
|"If don't want to live long enough to see the day when all this is possible then I wish you speed in your quest, Jennifer."
(Bill 7/27/2005 10:44:45 AM)
|"She's hot. Does anyone know if she has a boyfriend?"
(KL 7/27/2005 1:59:38 PM)
|"this is an amazing accomplishment. i am afraid that it will be used in an evil manner. some governments do not see this for what it is just for what they can get from/ with it. i just hope that responsability is kept most important."
(yeah 7/28/2005 4:20:59 AM)
|"But, does she give good head?"
( 7/28/2005 9:15:17 AM)
|"Meu Caralho, puta foda esse robozote eim."

|"How much money have you spend on that?..How many breakfast can you buy? Priorities are other not making super high tecnology dolls? "
(Cristián 7/30/2005 4:42:18 PM)
|"I mean 6.000.000.000 humans in the world."
(Cristián 7/30/2005 4:42:18 PM)
|"OK so leave it to the Japanese to create the ultra-submissive woman. As if they don't already subjagate their women enough. As one other person put it. This could be a very evil thing. Fortunately for the unsuspecting person the Droid is not free standing as of yet. When they cut the umbilical chord, that's when the ordinary person should be afraid. Yep I guess it's time to create the Bladerunner department in the Government. As if we don't already have enough police in the world."

|"Now please, don't get me wrong here, but to be honest I really don't like robots which look so much like humans. I think the only reason to make a robot seem human is for research purposes. In my view, robots are a seperate species, as so should not mimick the look of their creators. Robots look so much cooler as robots than as humans anyway.
And think about it, there is an incredibly huge market for robots like these with anime character likenesses instead of real human likenesses. "
(Iridis 8/20/2005 7:03:56 AM)
|"I hope in the near future i can go on a date with an android!"
(Atari 2600 9/18/2005 5:11:00 PM)
|"I hope you can date one too... that way you wont die lonely !! This is a cool robot, I'm sure that as materials get more suitable for true lifelike androids, it will be hard to tell human from robot. "
(R2D2 10/20/2005 2:49:15 AM)
|"Hella cool! Android nookie ROCKS !! Head jobs and Hand jobs !! What does her robagina look like?"
(Dead_Bill 10/20/2005 2:54:25 AM)
|"Professor Ishiguru looks like Micheal Jackson. I bet he humps that droid. Hell she cant move because of the big air compressor ... why not make her a sex toy ???"
(Stewie 10/20/2005 3:02:15 AM)
|"Just saw this on Nat. Geo. Channel ... I want to kill androids in the future !! Sign me up !!!"
(Bladerunner 10/20/2005 3:04:44 AM)
|"Let's try to keep this discussion in the PG-13 range - however, the word 'robagina' is sort of interesting..."
(Bill Christensen 10/20/2005 5:43:22 PM)
|"Lets not forget that a robot will always be a robot and everything that runs with a certain system can have 'errors'.
There's no such thing as a perfect system.
And i bet you don't want to be around an android when (s)he's having a system error.
Why? for the love of god why would you stick your penis is something that might be able to crush it when it's having a system error?

(i am a bad machine 8/25/2006 8:32:11 AM)
|"Will the robots be used to replace human astronauts, and possibly chrononauts (time-travel) to travel to distant and hostile planets for recon missions, and quantum travel?"
(Joseph Bent 8/31/2006 7:08:34 AM)
|"This invention is so cool because it looks almost exactly like a real person."
(Alexis 9/17/2006 1:28:55 PM)
|"haven't we learned anything from science fiction? they will rule us eventually"
(worried 11/27/2006 1:15:11 AM)
|"Jennifer.... stop being so pesimistic these are steps forward... we are only one species and to attain what we have is great... it will al come to an end for us all one day, for the time being lets appretiate and put to use being born now rather than 500 years ago where this would be a dream of many.
and as for worried. we wont be ruled by something not as powerful as ourselves...get real lol. humans create things to make steps forward and to benefit themselves. such as mobile phones, t.v (brings entertainment) to be honest theres not much we have create to go against us except weapons, i expect that this like many other things created will benefit us greatly.
if you want to reply no prob
otherwise i stumbled accross this searching about this topic lol. good to hear mixed comments though, but come on dont let your own fear rule your life theres reason to create this"
(Jay 12/3/2006 12:05:03 AM)
|"i think it is cool but one day they will rule the world.but people should rule."
(courtney 12/13/2006 12:24:12 PM)
|"Queinteresante prototipo andride, los robots cada dia mas se aproximan a los humanos, pero a un sus movimientos son lentos, pero esto ya es un gran avance en vanguardia, me pregunto si estan utilizando tecnologia difusa."
(MARCO MIRANDA CANO DE PERU LIMA 12/22/2006 11:53:41 AM)
|"I'll buy one as soon as they are 19.95 on tv"
( 12/30/2006 10:32:21 AM)
|"I'll buy one as soon as the robogina is installed and they make them look like playboy playmates"
