This is an interesting idea for a device, one which makes use of the social elements of the suicide bomber idea. I wonder if the android has any self-knowledge of the attack? A robot adhering to Asimov's rules of robotics would not be able to carry out a self-aware attack.
The android is disguised in a manner that makes it seem harmless to the target, or to not stand out in the environment in which the attack occurs.
