Fans of legendary science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick may already know that a functioning android of Dick was created in 2005 by robotics wiz David Hanson for a sum of $25,000. This robot looked like Dick, had most of his novels and characteristics downloaded into it’s brain and could carry on conversations as though it was the real thing! What many don’t know (or may have forgotten by now) is that the android’s head mysteriously vanished on a flight in 2006! To this day, the head of the sci-fi writer-futurist (who often advocated freedom and compassion for robots), is out there somewhere. Today I suggest we all take a good look around us and keep our eyes peeled for any bearded sentient robot heads.
Here is one of the few videos out there of Robot Philip K. Dick in action:
