Is this robot a liitle creepy?


Charles, the creepy mind-reading robot that imitates and understands human expressions, could lead to a new generation of 'emotional' droids.

Yes, it is.
While it's just mimicking, it's still creepy.
This is wonderful technology, but I have some concerns regarding interactions with robots.
People get attached to machines, like their cars for example. They even treat them as though they were living things. That seems pretty harmless, but that phenomenon could intensify with robots like these.
I really don't want to see people abandoning human contact in favor of robots that are always in agreement.
They're machines... Tools... Nothing more.

That was my fault.
I saw the "Invalid Youtube Video Code" error message, and not realizing you also had a working version further down in your question, made the corrections to the first one.
I'll remove the first one.
