Last night on Nova one of their stories was about a engineer named Cynthia Breazeal who creates “sociable” robots. This woman is dedicating all of her studies to making robots that feel. Not robots that do anything worth-while like disarming bombs or cooking your food. Her robots are specifically meant to show emotion and react to yours. I’ve seen WAY too many movies to ever think this would be a good idea!
Does this creep anyone else out?
