Of all the many, many things I could imagine wanting to have a robot around for (cleaning, taxes...um, sex...), screaming, crying, and breaking my stuff are NOT on the list.
researchers in Japan from making a mega-baby, a 66-pound 4'3" tall named "Diego-san" who is supposed to help researchers in Japan figure out how babies develop their motor skills and the like.
Hey, are any of you scientists? Honestly, I don't quite understand why a robot built by us would magically have similar learning processes to a baby. I mean, is the idea that in the process of figuring out how to program it, we might be able to analogize that programming to the way a baby works? Iiiiii dunno.
Eh, either way, this thing is just creepy.
