Building a Human Replica is Harder Than You Might Think!

Seriously folks, check out this extensive video for building a human replica by Peter Serafinowicz! This new sci-fi short proves it’s harder than it looks I guarantee this one will make you laugh your ass off! Check it out it’s a great vintage style film that brings to mind classic stuff like Westworld. Now you know why people act so weird-they’re most likely human replicas on a mission to build a million Eiffel Towers!!

Have you seen my missing Dick?

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.
