Someday we'll resent our children for getting to grow up with robot friends.

They're beginning to infiltrate our ranks

-1 because I don't want robots going to school with our children.

Awesome. Maybe I can get one instead of a kid.

robo-segregation today. robo-segregation tomorrow. robo-segregation forever!

I think this is a great example of us personifying something we don't understand, ie, to kids that know nothing of how anything works, they just assume it's a wierd looking person.

Can apply the same thing to religion.

But then again, kids that young tend to treat any moving thing as a person...dogs, cats, TV etc...until they are told or notice through observation that those things aren't treated as people by everyone else.

I wonder how that affects the uncanny valley. Is that something we learn, or do kids just wait till they grow up to complain how terrifying some puppets are?

Um... God's a sleepy robot?

i think i meant to comment somewhere else

I'd buy this if one of those toddlers pummeled the damn thing.

Thatcher Pennywhistle - 2007-11-07
Something about this makes me sad.

I'm not saying I wish the little robot any harm, I'm just saying when toddlers start hitting you it's a pretty good sign they've accepted you as one of their own.

Syd Midnight - 2007-11-07
Ah, the difference between "a fragile and expensive toy" and "my robot buddy I can wrestle with and then pour water on to see what happens". No point buying kids the first kind.

I just assumed SolRo was a weird looking person... until now.

Jesus kids are idiots

Gwago - 2007-11-07
Wow, why don't we just lay down and die so they can take over the world?! DIDN'T ANYBODY SEE TERMINATOR DAMMIT?!?

Sorry. Robots make me crazy.
Hugo Gorilla - 2007-11-07
Now show them cheesy movies, the worse they can find.

At first I thought the idea of a bunch of toddlers doing MST3K would be horrible, but just imagine if every other joke was "...POOP!" It would be brilliant.

Hailey2006 - 2007-11-07
Those robots would be cool!

I don't really like kids but I love baby robots.

I don't think they're really considering it as one of them.
Calamity Jon - 2008-01-11
Same here. They're pretty clearly treating it as an anthropomorphic toy. I've never seen kids patting each other on the head as part of rote social interaction.

One word: Forced Robo-Human Integration

Next step is to mount a .45 on that robot.
