shaken & stirred

welcome to my martini glass


and yet...

If they'd left out female (and the hands), I could debate domo arigato, Mr. Roboto:
Japanese scientists have unveiled the most human-looking robot yet devised - a 'female' android called Repliee Q1.

She has flexible silicone for skin rather than hard plastic, and a number of sensors and motors to allow her to turn and react in a human-like manner.

She can flutter her eyelids and move her hands like a human. She even appears to breathe.

Professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University says one day robots could fool us into believing they are human.
And couldn't they give her a better name? Repliee is so trashy.

Also, please get your hand out of her back.
