    This is actually reminiscent of Disney Anamatronics although it's probably more realistic-looking in person. I can envision some attempts at using these in places like nursing homes for "human" interaction, with some disappointing and creepy results.

    That's not as new as the date by the headline would lead you to believe ... I heard about that months ago.

    There are far scarier things than that out there ... not suitable for posting here.

    Yeah, LOL, I thought of Bladerunner when I read the article from this thread. What a great movie. "It's too bad she won't live! But then again, who does?"
