    Android Breakthroughs

    So I was looking up USB accelerometers for a project I'm working on, and I came across this site:

    http://www.androidworld.com/prod55.htm

    The site looked a little funky to me, and it's kinda crazy for someone to charge $1500 for an accelerometer, so I started to take a look around. Apparently, part of the site is dedicated to an android that he's building.

    That's right. A domestic android.

    Guess who couldn't get a date to Senior prom? It's so creepy it's hilarious. There are people like this out in the world--this Chris Willis is either a genius or a lunatic. Possibly both.
    Music and medicine, I'm living in a place where they overlap.

    The AD article, though not much is scientifically proved, is pretty interesting. I had a lot of beer can 'bowls' in my day, and there was always the rumor that it brought about AD when you got older... so, i'll be looking foward to a lot of those things they mention (not that I wouldn't be doing those anyway, as they create a generally healthier person).

    I think he's cool, he's chasing a goal that a lot of other people also have in mind for the eventual future, of course yeah the thing does look horrible, but such things can always improve. I really have to wonder how far one guy can make something closed enough to fit the purpose though.

    I saw some better, freakier videos of that japanese android a while ago, but I can't seem to find the link. I'll post 'em if I find 'em

    edit
    I think they took the older videos down. That's sad because those videos were hella creepy. I found some other vids :

    What Valerie will NOT be able to do:
    * Eat or drink
    * Breathe
    * Perform other bodily functions.
    * Hurt people (Asimov's first law)
    * Have sex.
    * Put her head under water.
    * Take any water or other liquids into her head or mouth.
    * Drive a car (because she can't go outside).
    * Run a lawn mower (because she can't go outside).
    * Physical actions which people cannot do.
    * Sleep
    Find which one is the funniest.

    I hope it's Asimov's First Law. Extra points for busting out the OG nerd reference.

    Is it real or not? God, I hope so. It would be like finding out Santa Claus was actually REAL. Until I find out that she won't drink my load or shit on my face, of course.
