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

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

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

Thatcher Pennywhistle
Something about this makes me sad.

KnowFuture
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
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.

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

Jesus kids are idiots

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
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
Those robots would be cool!

bang to buck ratio
:D

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
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.

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