I'll be the first to admit that when it comes to the whole 'Robot' thing, I've had my doubts about it for various reasons. I often watch documentaries, because as much as the whole idea of them scares me, I've always been fascinated by how quickly the quality of these robots advance in behaviour and realism.

That said, one of the biggest doubts I had was when the developers of these robots would talk about manufacturing techniques and AI that would make it impossible for you to distinguish a robot from a human even when stood right in front of one, "eye-to-eye" so to speak.

I always used to laugh at those statements, thinking that anyone dumb enough to be fooled by a robot and not be aware of it, would have to be a complete and utter imbecile. That's just never going to happen, not in our lifetime anyway.

Well that's what I thought, but I was wrong. I just saw two short movies where these robots are so damn good they're using them as actresses to prove the point. The main "woman" in both of these shorts are actually robots, and man, you have to admit they're pretty damn incredible!

They appear to be keeping the manufacturers names of these robots quiet for now (presumably due to NDA), but the first one generally goes by the name of "DUST", and the second one by the name of "RIDDER" (presumably named after the producers of these short movies).

Personally I think they both look completely authentic, I really do, but DUST is definitely the superiour robot when it comes to the way she behaves. I mean wow, she really is completely human-like in every possible way. RIDDER though, amazing as she is, still has a sort of 'robot' thing going on, and to be honest, comes across as a little bit scary!

Either way, not gonna lie, I think both robots are hot as hell and I tell you what, at this rate, it'll probably only be another ten years or so until these robots are readily available for sale to the general public! I'm guessing they'll cost about the same as a cheap car when they first arrive, but like everything else that sells well, they will fall in price over time making them easily affordable. Either way, I really am very impressed by these two, and to be honest I'd buy either one of them providing they sort the behaviour protocol out first and make them completely obedient, which after all is what you expect from a robot, right?

As hard as it has gotten now, we must never forget that these are robots, not humans!

Anyway, poll attached, and me, well I'm voting options 1 and 2 of course ... :mrgreen:
Photographers are going to be in heaven when these robots are released!!!
