We have discussed too few about the “behind the scenes” of the robots. Maybe it is more appropriate to say the “Inside the scenes” in this case because we are referring to what actually makes a robot “alive”: its software.
It is a reaaaally complicated issue to program a robot, so let’s leave it over there, in a stand for the people that know.
Let’s better think what could happen if we can have that “soul” in our hands, for example in you iPhone, and plug it into different robotic bodies… The result may be scary, or, kind of cute, as the SmartPet, from Bandai.
Just take a look at this video (it is in Japanese):
Now imagine doing that but in a bigger scale. Everything is possible…
