Actually, just because IT has the shape of a female is it right to call it ' her ' or ' female ' ?

Now that's very good, but I still don't think she (it) will be replacing the real thing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sl7Ww5-J6V4

Oh I don't know though!!!

Well people call boats and cars 'her' so why not a robot?

Why was that model carrying a watering can?

I've seen a few of those walking robots and I've noticed that none of them straighten their legs when they walk and that's what makes them so obviously artificial. I assume that's because it's harder to get the balance right with a straight leg. Or is that they're all made with haemorrhoid trouble? Does anyone know for sure?

I think they've all got really uncomfortable underwear, so it causes a constant wedgie.

The peculiar gait is due to the insertion of many D-cell batteries . [:)]

It's described by the BBC as a "Life-like walking female robot". OK, I accept it's a robot that walks; but in what meaningfull sense it it lifelike or female?

BTW,re "The peculiar gait is due to the insertion of many D-cell batteries ." where? or does that answer part of my earlier question?

If they're inserted into the back passage then that would certainly account for the odd gait!

I've seen the odd few real women walking like this on occasions, I shall not speculate on what batteries may have to do with it!

Has anyone else noticed there's an advert for robot kits at the bottom of this page? How'd they do that, then?

Do they have a list of potential advertisers just waiting for certain keywords to be used in the title? Or is it just a coincidence?

I bet when I've posted this reply the advert will change. Just to make me look like a robo-pratt.

It is the Google bots sniffing your posts. They select an advert that contains similar content to the post.

Oooooh, that's darned clever. I was beginning to doubt my own sanity for a moment. I'm going to keep refreshing the page and if it comes up again I'm going I'll copy and paste it's image in this thread. Just to bring the topic back round to robots again!

Wahaay. You've saved the day yet again. I refreshed the page about 25 times and it eluded me (although I could hear it mocking me from within the ether of web).

Aha Google Advert. Who's laughing now?  a?  a?
