    Yes but how emotional are we talking about here? Like girlfriend at that time of the month emotional or what. Having said that it seems the Japanese have problems with conveying emotions... Hence the need for a robot to fill that void tsk tsk

    Oh thank bollocks this article turned out different than I thought it would. As soon as I read the headline, I imagined robots either getting hysterical cause you forgot their birthday, or a sad little machine sitting in a corner crying while taking to its metal wrists with a dremel cause none of the other robots like it.
    Also the prospect of facepalming robots makes me very happy.

    Or scare the crap out of them. Seriously, it looks like it crawled out of the Uncanny Valley.

    Does it actually react emotionally to events around it or are we just talking about a piece of machinery doing the motions of emotion? The latter is quite unimpressive if you ask me.

    So, basically, researchers have created Marvin, the paranoid android...? :sigh:

    I wonder if it keeps complaining about the diodes down its left side?

    I suspect it's grasp of dialogue and acting ability already surpasses Arnie's...

    (eyebrow eyebrow eyebrow)

    I can't believe how much time and money the Japanese waste building these robots. They don't do anything useful, and you never hear about them besides when they're introduced.

    :-s

    To be honest I don't want an emotional robot. I want a robot that just does what I tell it to and never complains about me over working it or whatever.

    nice mouth.. looks like it could suck a golfball through a garden hose- or is that the point?

    that must be the look on it's face when sizzling shamino sneaks up from his backside and violates all the holes

    Hopefully it will have an emotion chip similar to Data's. After all, robots are our slaves... they dont need to know about it, less feel about it too... You just keep building our cars you mindless machines! :D

    And it's an attitude like that which will cause the eventual uprising of the machines, and the near anihilation of the human race.

    :p
