Dateless Dweebs Worldwide: "This Is The Greatest Day In History"

Those crafty South Koreans haved answered many a 30-something Dorito-fed video-game-addicted socially-challenged sad sack's dreams:

The world's first female android:

EveR-1, a combination of Eve and robot, looks just like a Korean female in her early 20s including her shape that is benchmarked against the nation's model.

The human-sized robot can understand 400 words and make eye contact while talking via her lips that are synchronized with the pronunciation of words.

Fifteen tiny motors embedded into her silicon face enable her to make a total of four expressions in tune with as many sentiments _ joy, anger, sorrow and happiness.

From a distance, the android could be confused with a real, flesh and blood human being, according to [team leader Moon-hong] Baeg.

Her face has four expressions, and she understands 400 words, making her a better blogger than Maryscott O'Connor.

When well they make one that's really fat and has a buzz cut?

Well, it can express only four emotions, consists largely of synthetic parts, is undoubtedly cold to the touch, and almost certainly extremely expensive and probably requires large amounts of money to function, and can only be confused for a human being from a distance...

Hell, I've done worse...

Almost sounds like my first wife.

Did I say that out loud *laughing*

Does she clean up after herself or will there be piles of dead batteries in the corner?

This is one of those little news bits that brings hope and encouragement for life to come. Koreans must not have studied Harry Harlow's work.

I want to know if they hardwired in the Three Laws.

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.

A robot must obey orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.

A robot must love you long time.

That's it. Isaac Asimov references trump Star Trek TNG references any day. Wait, is that Alan Parson's Project I'm hearing in the background?
