Al Jazeera. I like.
Then just as I was still recovering from the WHAT THE...? effect, the Japanese came back & hit us with this Model bot.
See, this reaffirms my belief that as robots evolutionise to become more sophistificated & human-like, humans on the other hand are de-volutioning (if there's such a word) to become more android-like with fake lashes, fake hair, fake coloured contacts, tons of makeup & fake body parts. And that's just cosmetics.
You'd also have people with fake prosthetic arms & legs, some fitted with more technologically advanced artificial limbs. That kept me thinking. If more & more parts of our bodies stop functioning, & we keep on replacing them with advanced chip-based limbs & organs, how long will it be before we are called a cyborg, instead of a human being? At what point do we stop being humans?
Imagine if 99% of our physical self is replaced by these technological parts, & we could connect to the internet wireless through the chip in our head, wouldn't the internet be an extension of ourself? And so, if our consciousness leave our physical bodies & decided to stay on the internet, then Mamoru Oshii's Ghost in the Shell would finaly have become a reality.
Here's the video clip of the latest Model bot HRP-4c.
There is hope for all the single men out there.
