I don’t mean fictional ones - I mean the real ones that are going to rule us in a few years time

Here’s Erica

Here’s Atlas

any thoughts?
Weird how robots are so gendered right?

I will be first against the wall, come the revolution.

Robots don’t exist

@DarwinBabe already made a thread about robot children.

don’t know if it got onto robots with regards to gender, though. DB, if people have robot kids, what about gender and that?
