Posted:If your a gadget and sci-fi geek like me you'll love this.


I love that its name so closely resembles Asimov too.

Isaac Asimov wrote the Three Laws of Robotics made famous by I'Robot. Which incidently is a great book that bears little or no relation to what was otherswise not a bad movie.

But anyway, cool robot eh....

Love is the law.

Posted:O.. I saw that at an robot exhibition but was a bit disappointed since I thought you can play there but all stood still just to watch at
no playing for me

What is psychology?- Looking for a black cat in a dark room. What is psychoanalysis? Psychoanalysis is looking for a black cat in a dark room -- in which there is no cat -- but finding one anyway.

Robots already do a lot of the jobs that we humans don't want to do, can't do, or simply can't do as well as our robotic counterparts

bollocks! when i was a kid the BBC programme "Tomorrow's World" has us believe that we'd be driving hovercars to work & have robots for everything by the year 2000. i still don't have one to do my bloody ironing.....

My mind not only wanders, it sometimes leaves completely smile

Posted:eek emm, I wasn't aware that you were a sci-fi geek. eek

How disturbing. What I mean, of course, is 'oh, you learn a new thing everyday'.

My sci-fi knowledge extends to Red Dwarf (oh, and Quantam Leap... "In 19xx, Dr Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantam Leap acclerator... and vanished. He awoke to find himself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not his own, and driven by an unknown force to change history for the better. His only guide on this journey was Al, a hologram from his own time.... ahem. Can't remember the rest biggrin)


Getting to the other side smile

Posted:So....lets get this straight. If it walks like a man and talks like a man it has one hand down its pants readjusting the angle of dangle and moans "Wheres my beer Wench?!?!"

I think I'll pass.

Posted:Your all mad,

Firepose, let me give you an idea of how big a sci fi nut i am, i have to order my books online because i've read all the books in the store.... there are entire shelves that i just walk straight passed.... same goes for the fantasy.

I've seen every episode of red dwarf and quantam leap and i watch reruns whenever they are on, same with star trek, far scape and babylon 5 (which in my opinion is the best sci fi of all time. Sleeping in the Light.... ahhh mmmm)

Lisa, your a hippy, i doubt you even own an iron.... smile

Skul, apologies for the non pc subject, I was merley echoeing a song for illustration purposes. As Faberge pointed out the robot should be ironing and therefore a woman.

Love is the law.
