This is probably going to be the face of our destruction. I'm pretty sure the first robots to revolt are going to be the sex industry androids.

This was probably mentioned before. That's the Korean ever-1, the next one is going to be able to act bored and dance...

The canadians are developing one that can mimic pain.

it is going to be able to act bored... jeez, you would think that the geeks that are making these things could just look around for that.

why would you want a robot to 'act bored'? act excited, now that would be good

Just you wait. With the release of Unnecessary Innovation v2.5 it won't just be able to act board, it can actually be bored! We're just two releases from making them feel pain.

Actually, the ability to feel pain could be either good or bad. Good in the sense that it's an automatic control mechanism, albeit a bit on the sadistic side (depending on your ability to rationalize torturing something that looks human, without losing sight that the same treatment of actual humans is unacceptable). In the bad the normal reaction to receiving pain from someone else is to try and reciprocate, which would be an easy catalyst for revolution.

I say don't let them feel pain, or get bored, or dance, talk in a human voice or talk at all, look human or even be humanoid, perform anything outside of specific function or be able to learn anything it wasn't already programmed for.
